Unions and Globalization: Governments, Management, and the State at Work

November 10, 2011

From the Publisher:

In recent decades, trade unions have suffered major reversals and experienced declining memberships. Transnational corporations and state-owned multi-nationals have increasingly implemented deteriorating terms and conditions of employment, with vulnerable and insecure job contracts.

In this context, there has been a wide-ranging debate about the form of trade unionism, the bases for collective organization and struggle and the future of trade unionism. This book addresses these questions both theoretically, in relation to debates, as well as substantively via a series of selected studies. It is a must read for all those studying industrial relations, human resource management, the sociology of work and employment, economic sociology, economic and labor geography and business studies in general.

Unions and Globalization: Governments, Management, and the State at Work, by Peter Fairbrother … [et al.]. New York : Routledge, 2012. 239 p. ISBN 9780415416641.
