Opening doors as well as banging on tables. An assessment of UNISON/employer partnerships on learning in the UK public sector.

  The academic debate on partnerships has so far mainly focused on whether there are mutual gains for both unions and employers and whether they support or undermine branch organisation. This debate is here assessed in relation to learning partnerships, which are considered to be a distinctive form of partnership and represent a process of institution-building.
