Item description for Decentralizing Industrial Relations and the Role of Labor Unions and Employee Representatives (Bulletin of Comparative Labour Relations) (Bulletin of Comparative Labour Relations Series Set) by Roger Blanpain; Takashi Araki; Shinya Ouch...

In countries where collective bargaining is conducted mainly at the industry or regional level, there is often a type of workers representation at the company or establishment level other than a labor union. Where this double form of worker representation that is, labor unions and employee representatives exists, the relationship between the two can present a delicate problem in industrial relations. Decentralizing Industrial Relations is an in-depth country-by-country analysis, for nine major industrial nations, of three essential topics in this area: the relationship between labor unions and employee representatives, the shift in collective bargaining from industry or branch towards the company or establishment level, and the role of labor unions or employee representatives in the flexibilization of labor protective regulations.

What emerges in the course of the analysis sheds important light on such crucial factors as the following:

  • the political power of labor unions;
  • the extent to which employee representatives can and do protect workers interests;
  • `single-channel (labor unions only) versus `double-channel systems;
  • invasion of the `turf of labor unions by employee representation systems; and
  • inclusion of disadvantageous working conditions in collective agreements or workplace agreements.

In the aggregate, the study finds that, although employers are nowhere completely free to modify working conditions unilaterally, in all countries they can, abetted by the decline of labor unions and an emphasis on `flexibilization, make working conditions increasingly dependent on the individual employment contract. In this global context, the supremacy of labor unions is being questioned. This issue is undoubtedly one that deeply concerns all professionals interested in labor, employment, and industrial relations.
