Workers' democracy - Staughton Lynd

Serbia 2000
Serbia 2000

An article by Staughton Lynd reinterprets the concept of union democracy to include workers of all kinds (unionized workers, nonunion workers, and farmers); protection of the rights to strike, picket, and slow down; and the demand for worker-community ownership. This article examines two recent examples of workers’ democracy: the Serbian revolution of 2000 and the Zapatistas’ ongoing struggle in Chiapas, Mexico.

I'm from Serbia, and can say that there pretty much never was anything like workers democracy here (maybe some isolated instances pre-ww2). He have an entire number of two worker coops in the entire country, one's an inter-city bus transport firm which is only a half-way worker coop, it is worker owned but not worker managed, and the second is an agricultural worker coop (using a mix of individual and communal farming) that was started only last year.
