Innovative and offering a sociological analysis of trade unionism in the globalized era, this book provides a robust and coherent comparative analysis of the debate surrounding trade unions and their renewal.
In recent decades trade unions suffered major reversals. They experienced declining memberships. Employers were increasingly assertive if not hostile. Transnational corporations and state-owned multi-nationals increasingly implement deteriorating terms and conditions of employment, vulnerable and insecure job contracts.
Using theory and a variety of case studies, this book explores:
• the debate about the form of trade unionism
• the bases for collective organization
• the struggle and the future of trade unionism.
This is a must read for all those studying industrial relations, human resource management, the sociology of work and employment, economic sociology, economic and labour geography and business studies in general.
