Globalization

TRASNATIONAL LABOUR

Bieler, Andreas and Ingemar Lindberg (eds.) (2010)

Global Restructuring, Labour and the Challenges for Transnational Solidarity 
London: Routledge.

ISBN 978-0-415-58083-0.

Globalisation has put national labour movements under severe pressure due to the increasing transnationalisation of production and informalisation of the economy.

Through a range of different case studies of concrete instances of successful as well as failed strategies, this book draws out possibilities of, but also obstacles to, transnational labour solidarity in times of global restructuring. It covers inter-trade union co-operation as well as co-operation between trade unions and social movements within the formal and informal economy, and the public and private sector.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars of International Political Economy, International Relations, Industrial Relations, Globalisation, Geography and History, as well as trade union researchers and social movement activists.
