Abstract

Global Unions, Global Business takes a unique approach to the topic of Global Unions. It looks at a little-understood aspect of globalization: the role of the Global Union Federations in international employment relations. The book outlines the way that trade unions at international level relate to multinational companies using detailed and up-to-date illustrations of their activities.

Importantly, the book includes an in-depth case study of one of the GUF’s dealings with a major multinational company. Throughout the book the authors also explore the previously unknown internal lives of the Global Union Federations and propose ideas about how they can strengthen their position internationally.

Global Unions, Global Business is a unique contribution to existing literature on globalization and international employment relations, throwing new light both on the international trade union movement and its relations with multinational companies. The book will be of interest to all those interested in the future of trade unionism, multinational companies and the future of international industrial relations. (publisher's statement)
