Description

Recent developments in the world economy, including deindustrialisationand the digital revolution, have led to an increasingly individualistic relationshipbetween workers and employers, which in turn has weakened labourmovements and worker representation. However, this process is notuniversal, including in some countries of Asia, where trade unions areclosely aligned with the interests of the dominant political party and thestate. This book considers the many challenges facing trade unions andworker representation in a wide range of Asian countries. For each country,full background is given on how trade unions and other forms of workerrepresentation have arisen. Key questions then considered include the challengesfacing trade unions and worker representation in each country, theextent to which these are a result of global or local developments and theactions being taken by trade unions and worker representative bodies tocope with the challenges.
