This paper discusses transnational labour solidarity, and how North American unions in the auto, steel, trucking, clothing and telecomm industries are increasingly embracing this vision for global labour.
There is a growing interest in participative management as a way to overcome rigidities in labour-management relations. This implies a higher degree of self-supervision, flatter hierarchies and blurring of the lines dividing workers and managers. In other words, participative management entails a restructuring of the power relation between labour and management. This paper addresses this issue.
