dc.description.abstract Low levels of skills and high levels of monotomy are associated with work in auto-plants. In South Africa workers develope a wide range of skills and perform a wide variety of jobs. These skills are called 'tacit skills' in this paper. The workers problems are from the injustice of the system of job grading, reward and promotion. Worker's knowledge is not recognised. If this was recognised productivity would improve. Some companies are begining to introduce workplace participation involing workers. en_US
