Description - Gender, Diversity and Trade Unions by Fiona Colgan
The pressures of globalization and diversity are increasingly requiring organizations to rethink their priorities and methods. In this collection, leading researchers examine the debates and developments on gender, diversity and democracy in trade unions in eleven countries. The topics covered include: * Theory and practice of self organizing trade unions, with case studies from the UK, Canada and Italy * strategies of gender democracy in unions in the new South Africa and in re-unified Germany * issues of sexual politics and sexuality in traditional heterosexual 'male' union domains in Australia and Canada * women in the formal and informal economies and trade unions of India * issues of class, gender and race/ethnicity in Sweden and Malaysia * the feminization of unions in New Zealand * renewal of American unions through organizing and equity strategies.
Offering an authoritative basis for comparative analysis, this book is essential reading for researchers, teachers, trade unionists and students of industrial relations and equal opportunities, along with all those concerned with ensuring that modern organizations reflect and represent the needs and concerns of a diverse workforce.
