Politics of Labor in a Global World

Christopher Candland Rudra Sil
Price: $ 24.95

One of the first works to analyze and compare recent shifts in patterns of industrial relations across late-industrializing and post-socialist economies, this volume features original, timely essays on distinct responses to common economic pressures associated with "globalization." As unions in late-developing countries engaged in economic liberalization, and as unions in post-socialist economies cope with the break down of command economies, these pressures have grown. The authors also reveal that globalization has weakened organized labor, yet they explain that distinct labor institutions persist despite similar economic adjustment measures. Globalization may even facilitate variation in the pattern of labor relations at national, local, and workplace levels, and within and across late-industrializing and post-socialist settings.
