The Role of the Economic, Technological, and Demographic Environments
Katz, Harry C.; Kochan, Thomas A.; Colvin, Alexander
[Excerpt] This chapter examines how various forces in the environment influence labor relations in emerging countries. We focus in particular on how factors in the economic, technological, and demographic environments influence the bargaining power of both labor and management. In doing so we are moving downward in our three-tiered framework by examining how external environmental factors influence the functional level of labor relations.
