Las Funciones del Sindicato en un Mundo Globalizado
In these times national unions seem to be out of breath under the wave of globalization, on which multinational firms surf quite well. But this is a false perception nowadays, when global unions begin to appear everywhere discussing, orienting and bargaining with their counterparts. The essay reflects about several types of unions’ intervention in the global scenario: international coordination of a global counterpart; transnational solidarity; incorporation to a judicial solution; transnational collective bargaining; and transnational mediation and arbitration. All five types of activities become presented under a significant case, not always finished with a unions victory.
