Comparison between labour markets and the spread of neoliberalism and financialization are analysed in Chapter 2, with new material in Chapter 10 helping students turn a critical eye to how conflict is managed in practice, whether it's in the context of managing disciplinary procedures, staff absences, or grievances. Organized thematically to provide comprehensive coverage, while maintaining a critical focus to draw out the contemporary debates surrounding work, employment, and employment relations, it is clear to see why this book is the most trusted and thought-provoking introduction to the subject available.

This insightful Handbook examines how labour unions across the world have experienced and responded to the growth of neo-liberalism. Since the 1970s, the spread of neo-liberalism across the world has radically reconfigured the relationship between unions, employers and the state. The contributors highlight that this is the major cause and effect of union decline and argue that if there is to be any union revitalisation and return to former levels of influence, then unions need to respond in appropriate political and practical ways. Written in a clear and accessible style, the Handbook examines unions' efforts to date in many of the major economies of the world, providing foundations for understanding each country. Policymakers, analysts, academics, researchers and advanced students in employment, industrial and labour relations as well as political economy will find this unique Handbook an important resource to understanding the contemporary plight and activity of labour unions.

The Dynamics of Managing Diversity

Page: 304

View: 5958

The Dynamics of Managing Diversity:a critical approach takes a fresh approach to the issues of equality and diversity in the world of employment today. It takes the view that the study of equality now needs to consider not only issues of discrimination, but also the needs of people in relation to their diverse cultures and identities. The text discusses diversity as recognition of the differences and similarities between and among social groups, and how resulting policies must reflect these. The Dynamics of Managing Diversity offers an integrative approach looking at all the issues surrounding managing equality and diversity in the workplace. Equality and diversity are treated as mutually reinforcing, rather than competitive concepts. Topics explored are firmly placed within the organizational and labour market framework and examined from a sociological perspective. The text draws on European examples and countries which have made a significant contribution to managing equality and diversity. Divided into two parts, the following topics are addressed: Contexts and Concepts: background settings; the social contexts, the labour market, theoretical concepts and diversity, equality and discrimination issues at the level of the organization. Policy and Practice: looks at the role of the State and EU, trade unions, employer policy approaches and a comparative view of policy examples within a European context.
