Abstract This article represents the standpoint that the relationship between employers and employees has to be characterized by the term “partnership”. A genuine partnership is based on trust. On the other hand, trust results from constructive dialogue. Concerning the issue of employment, that kind of dialogue can only take place if two conditions are fulfilled: firstly both parties have to commit themselves to listen to each other in a sympathetic way. Secondly both parties have to keep their promises. The author argues that the ideals needed for such a relationship can be found in the theology of covenant.
