International Labor Relations
Labor union: an association of workers who have united to collectively express their views for wages, hours, and working conditions
Collective bargaining: negotiations between labor union representatives and employers regarding a broad spectrum of work-related issues
Overall attitudes within a country affect the ways in which management and labor view one another and the ways in which labor attempts to negotiate better working conditions.
A country’s sociopolitical environment will largely determine the type of relationship between labor and management and affect the number, representation, and organization of unions.
