9780801437793: Transnational Cooperation among Labor Unions (Cornell International Industrial and Labor Relations Reports)

Organized labor faces enormous challenges in the increasingly global economy. The effect of multinational corporations, the portability of technology and capital, and lowered trade barriers in international commerce have all sparked widespread prophecies of trade union demise. This book, however, presents compelling evidence that unions can survive and grow if labor is willing to cooperate across national borders. Transnational Cooperation among Labor Unions is a seminal study of such cooperation as an effective weapon against the exploitation of workers in today's world.After assessing the challenges confronting organized labor, the authors turn their attention to specifics. They describe and evaluate the most important transnational labor associations, campaigns, and transnational cooperatives in a variety of industries. Contributors include academics who have assessed the status of union-management relations and international labor organizations as well as participants in union campaigns organized across national boundaries.

About the Author:

Lowell Turner is Professor of International and Comparative Labor at the ILR School and Director of the Worker Institute at Cornell University. He is coeditor most recently of Mobilizing against Inequality, Labor in the New Urban Battlegrounds, and Rekindling the Movement, all from Cornell.

Review:

"Thirteen papers contribute to the understanding of the industrial relations phenomena of transnational collaboration."―Journal of Economic Literature, September, 2001

"This is an avowedly normative collection, whose comprehensive nature makes it an important and timely contribution to an area that is under-researched and under-theorised. . . For labour activists and researchers interested in the future of the labour movement, this is a book of great importance."―Caroline Smith, University of Strathclyde. The Journal of Industrial Relations, December 2001

"Since the 1990s transnational citizen activism has been the subject of a growing literature. . . Strangely neglected, however, has been the topic of transnational labour activism. . . The edited volume by Gordon and Turner is thus a welcome effort to remedy this gap in the study of transnational mobilisation. Written mostly by US practitioners and scholars of labour relations, it is accessible to both activists and academics."―Beate Sissenich, Cornell University. Transfer 4/01

"Transnational Cooperation Among Labor Unions is a key contribution to the growing literature on labor's agency in global struggles with capital. It is uniformly well conceived and well edited."―Dale W. Wimberly, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Work and Occupations, Vol. 29, No. 1, February 2002

"This edited volume about international cooperation between unions could not have been published at a better time. It becomes clearer each day that the revival of the labor movement will depend largely on unions' ability to operate across borders and somehow reduce the negative impact of globalization on organizing and bargaining. This is a carefully organized and generally well-written book."―Gary Chaison, Clark University. Industrial and Labor Relations Review, Vol. 55, No. 3, April 2002

"This book describes pioneering efforts to answer capital's globalization with international labor cooperation. It's difficult but essential work―and this book shows that it can be done."―Jeremy Brecher, author of Global Village or Global Pillage: Economic Reconstruction from the Bottom Up
