Demoncratic Institutions Of Industrial Relations: A Polish Perspective, Ludwik Florek Jan 1991

Demoncratic Institutions Of Industrial Relations: A Polish Perspective, Ludwik Florek

Michigan Journal of International Law

This essay addresses three issues. The author first describes the major features of the previous Polish industrial relations system which caused it to be undemocratic. He then presents arguments justifying the need for a democracy in industrial relations in Poland. Second, the indispensable premises and elements of three basic democratic institutions of industrial relations are identified: trade union freedom, collective bargaining and the right to strike. These elements were selected for analysis on the basis of international legal instruments, in particular, conventions of the International Labor Organization ("ILO"), as well as U.S. and West European labor legislation.

Monologue Or Dialogue In Management Decisions: A Comparison Of Mandatory Bargaining Duties In The United States And Sweden, Timothy A. Canova

Timothy A. Canova

Management and labor are adversaries in both U.S. and Swedish industrial relations.

Labor Unions And The Economic Performance Of Firms, Barry T. Hirsch

Upjohn Press

Hirsch develops a model of union rent-seeking in which the unions capture a share of quasi-rents that make up the normal ROI in long-lived capital and R&D. He finds that in response, firms adjust their investments in vulnerable tangible and intangible capital. Hirsch also attempts to explain the connection between the contraction of the size of unions which occurred in the 1970s and firms' lower profitability, diminished market value, and lower investment levels.
