Labor Relations And Management

  1. What are the major strengths of job control unionism? The major weaknesses? Has job control unionism outlived its usefulness?
  2. Full-fledged labor–management partnerships are rare. Why? In your answer, do not blame only labor unions. In other words, be sure to identify reasons why a variety of stakeholders (shareholders, managers, employees, and union leaders) might resist the formation of labor–management partnerships.
  3. In a concise paragraph, paraphrase what you have learned about globalization to explain to a policymaker why globalization has profound implications for domestic employment issues. Based on these implications, should enforceable labor standards (a social clause) be added to free trade agreements? If so, what should the standards be and how should they be enforced?
