He is an active member of collaborative international research groups with some of the leading scholars in the field of HRM, Work and Employment from across the world. Current/ongoing research projects/networks:

i) Employee Voice/Information and Consultation of Employees/Organisational Silence: Collaborative Irish Research Council (IRC) and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) research project since 2008 on employee information and consultation/employee voice provisions on the island of Ireland. Part of a team of researchers from Ireland, the UK and beyond, which includes:

  • Dr. Eugene Hickland (Dublin City University, Ireland).

The team publish numerous articles in many of the top journals in the area of HRM, Work and Employment on an ongoing basis. Some of the work is summarised in an impact case published in 2020 by University of Limerick, Republic of Ireland: “Who speaks for whom at work: worker voice and social dialogue”. https://www.ul.ie/research/who-speaks-whom-work-worker-voice-and-social-dialogue

ii) Industrial and economic democracy: In addition to the above, Tony has research interests in labour-management partnerships and workplace cooperation, trade union recognition.

This includes a case study of the real living wage at Luton Town Football Club. It also includes editing a new book on the living wage around the world, to be published by Routledge in 2021/22.

iv) The Future of Work: Involved in a number of new research initiatives in this area, relating to the implications of Covid for the futures of work:

One element includes a collaborative research project as Parliamentary Academic Fellow with the UK Parliament, ‘Post COVID-19 policies for the future of work and employment’, (July 1st 2021-June 30th 2022).

Another aspect includes editing a Special Issue in the Industrial Relations (Berkeley) journal (ABS 4*), ‘Comparative Impacts of the COVID-19 Crisis on Work and Employment’, with the following co-editors: Dr. Stewart Johnstone, University of Strathclyde, UK; Dr. Marta Kahancová, Central European Labour Studies Institute, Slovakia; Dr. Ryan Lamare, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA; Prof. Adrian Wilkinson, Griffith University, Australia.

v) The sociology of work: research in this area focuses on industrial relations frames of reference on workplace conflict and resistance. Tony has supervised PhD research on the comparative contexts of labour disputes in the UK (London Underground) and the Republic of Ireland (Dublin Bus), and this collaboration continues as one of his former PhD students Emma Hughes is now a Lecturer in HRM at University of Liverpool Management School, UK.

Tony is also collaborating in research on social media use, managerial surveillance and employee sousveillance and resistance, with Claire Taylor at Sheffield Business School, UK, and a paper has been accepted in New, Technology Work and Employment.

vi) Impact of economic restructuring on employment/redundancies and skills in the labour market: The main aspect of this research comprises ongoing interdisciplinary research project with Dr. Alexandra Plows from social sciences at Bangor University. It includes examining the labour market impact of economic restructuring and redundancies in industries like aluminium manufacture and nuclear power generation on workforces and the sustainability of local communities in North Wales. This project is contributing to wider impact – notably advancing understanding, and links with stakeholders, about the regional impact of labour market restructuring. In particular, what are the labour market experiences/trajectories of workers made redundant? What interventions are required to improve matching of supply and demand in labour markets?

In addition to this, Tony has supervised to completion PhD research by Shijin Zhang on the labour market experiences and destinations of Chinese graduates after they graduate from UK universities.

Another element of this research agenda is writing about redundancies and downsizing with Prof. Adrian Wilkinson (Griffith University).
