This Comment will analyze the changing situation in Germany and offer analogies based on a historical precedent. Though the degree of change was much less revolutionary, Great Britain in the 1980s experienced a period of industrial privatization similar to that which is presently occurring in Germany. The purpose of this Comment is to examine the effects of British privatization on plant-level labor representation and industrial relations and to show how this experience may provide insight into what is likely to happen in Germany during its period of privatization.
