The Diminishing Role for Unions in Modern Industrial Relations.

13016. The Diminishing Role for Unions in Modern Industrial Relations.

Critically assesses the proposition that unions have no place in modern industrial relations. Through an examination of the patterns and factors involved in the decline in unionization, this essay argues that Anglo-Saxon style (i.e., unions based on adversarial management-labor relations and on collective bargaining) have, for ill or for good, lost a great deal of their relevance within modern industrial relations. At the same time, the case is made that there is a need for an institutional/organizational framework to replace the traditional unions. Finding an appropriate replacement will require not only concessions and a more favorable attitude towards workers from management, but also increased flexibility and adaptability on the part of employee organizations. 13 pages, 29 footnotes, 26 bibliographic sources.
