About this Unit
The countries studied may include Europe, Scandinavia, North America, and the Pacific Rim. Through comparative study of the countries, selected attention is placed on the divergence of industrial relations systems as well as those aspects of industrial relations that show convergence. Emphasis is placed on describing how the industrial relations system operates in each of the countries and by so doing attention is also paid to the challenges and trends facing each of those countries and how the principal participants are responding to the changes. Throughout the unit the focus is comparative industrial relations, rather than a study of each of the systems in isolation. Attention is also given to international trade union practices and international management practices in the context of transnational corporations.
