Industrial Relations and Collective Bargaining
The signifi cance of Industrial Relations in an industrial society amidst the cornerstones of democracy, pluralism and industrialisation is the subject of this lesson. The basics are established in the context of the three schools of thought: the Pluralism of Flanders, the Marxism of Hyman and the Strategic Contingency Theory of Kochan. The author, Dr. Sarath Davala of IIMB, conducts a journey through the IR institutions of Collective Bargaining, Participatory Management and Human Resources Management. He delves into ‘Bread and Butter Unionism’, ‘Industrial Democracy Unionism’ and ‘Enterprises Unionism’ of America, Europe and Japan respectively. At the core of all this are the main features of the IR system in India. Trade unionism in India, confl ict resolution mechanisms and the limits of collective bargaining are illustrated. How does all this fi t into the process of globalisation?
