Laurie Carmichael (ALR 110) notes that: "It is now commonplace to say that the world is proceeding through a technological revolution. The big question ,for us is whether we share its benefits in Australia effectively guarding against -the dangers it can bring." Undoubtedly, trade unions must focus on the need of working people vis-a-vis technological change and the dangers it can bring. Indeed, Carmichael went on to provide us with a valuable challenge to the Taylorist model of management and alienating work practices, the result of -.deskilling.
