Regulating Labour in the Wake of Globalisation by Cynthia Estlund

Book Description

In recent decades, the prevailing response to the problem of unacceptable labour market outcomes in both Europe and North America - national regulation of labour standards and labour relations, coupled with collective bargaining - has come under increasing pressure from the economic and technological forces associated with globalisation. As those forces have shifted power away from national governments and labour unions and toward capital, the appropriate institutional locus of labour regulation has become hotly contested. There have been efforts to move the locus of regulation downward to smaller units of governance, including firms themselves, upward to larger units such as regional federations and international organizations, and outward to non-governmental organizations and civil society. In this volume, labour relations scholars from North America and Europe examine the efficacy of these emerging forms of labour regulation, their democratic legitimacy, the goals and values underlying them, and the appropriate direction of reform.

Regoverning the Workplace by Cynthia Estlund Regoverning the Workplace, Hardback (February 2010)

Seeks to shape different trends toward employer self-regulation into a fresh paradigm of workplace governance in which workers participate. This book argues that the trend toward self-regulation is here to stay.

Working Together by Cynthia Estlund Working Together, Paperback (November 2005)

Explores the paradoxical nature and the importance of workplace bonds in a diverse democratic society. This book advocates a closer look at the role of law in realizing the democratic possibilities of working together. It is the involuntariness of workplace interactions which helps ensure that the project of racial integration succeeds at work.
