China's Trade Unions and Management, Hardback Book

China's Trade Unions and Management Hardback

Part of the Studies on the Chinese Economy series


This book examines the role of trade unions vis-a-vis management in the People's Republic of China from 1949 to the present day.

It deals with the evolution, reform and consolidation of the Chinese labour movement and, particularly, the role of the main arm of Chinese organized labour, the All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) at both the apex and grass-roots levels.

It not only covers the recent history of Chinese trade unions but also assesses their strategy and structure and membership as well as their legal context.

After this, it goes on to consider their role vis-a-vis management in both the State-owned as well as the foreign-funded sectors.

Last, it compares their activities with organized labour in three Overseas Chinese societies, namely Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.
