Abstract:

This paper compares questionnaire responses of management and labor sectors in Peru on their opinions as to the duties of the worker and the companys obligation to the workers. There is agreement between the management and labor groups interviewed on important issues, such as that the incompetent worker should be fired that impersonal, objective criteria should be used in selecting new workers that reasonable working rules should be strictly enforced that high quality norms should be insisted upon and that supervisors should try to settle the problems of workers if at all possible rather than pass them all on to higher management. Generally, there was also agreement between both sectors that ability, rather than seniority, should be the determining criteria for wage increases. Labor and management differed on a number of traditionally important bargaining matters, such as retention of workers even when no longer needed, due to automation or declining business, and training outside of the plant.
