    QUAKER EMPLOYERS AND INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS * QUAKER EMPLOYERS AND INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS * Child, John Footnotes 1 The term ‘employer’ will be used to cover all those occupying a senior position in industry, regardless of their financial stake in the organisation; in other words, it covers both the capital‐owning business man and the manager.
