Union involvement in learning and union 'revitalisation' strategies

Mustchin, Stephen 2009 (has links)
This thesis assesses the contribution of union involvement in learning to union 'revitalisation' in the UK. The overall research question addressed in this thesis is 'Have bargaining and organising approaches linked to learning provision contributed to strengthened union presence or 'revitalisation' in the sectors and demographic groups where it is underrepresented and declining (i.e outside the public sector?)' Since 1997, unions in the UK have expanded their level of involvement in issues related to learning, in large part due to increased government funding via the Union Learning Fund and with the statutory recognition of Union Learning Representatives. These developments have taken place at a time when unions have been adopting, to various extents, strategies to counter decline in membership levels and bargaining coverage. Two of the main strategies of this type include an increased emphasis on organising new members and workplaces, and the fostering of cooperative or 'partnership' style collective agreements. These are analysed in detail in this thesis, particularly in terms of how increased union involvement in learning supports and influences such strategies. The empirical dimension of the thesis is largely based on in-depth, qualitative interviews, including five chapters based around case studies of union learning activity that relates to broader union 'revitalisation' strategies. Key findings include that union involvement in learning has contributed somewhat towards increasing levels of membership and building union presence among underrepresented groups of workers, but that the process of integrating learning into collective agreements has been problematic due to ambivalent and often hostile employers, within a context of weak state regulation and statutory support.

Investigation of Chinese immigrants assimilation patterns in Hong Kong labour market

Ng, Chi Man 2012 (has links)
Hong Kong is a society of Chinese immigrants whose adaptation has become a great concern to both policymakers and scholars. In the last two decades, the handover of Hong Kong sovereignty to People's Republic of China on 1 July 1997 and the Asian financial crisis did create a gap in the China-Hong Kong migration literature. Besides, Hong Kong immigration department adopted three new admission schemes in the last decade, the thesis contributes to the literature by incorporating the consideration of them and address two assimilation questions, the first research question is about the relationship between Chinese immigrants' characteristics and the corresponding effects on their assimilation patterns in Hong Kong labour market, the author investigates the variation of Chinese immigrants assimilation patterns and explains why patterns vary under different economic settings. The second research question is about Chinese immigrants' endowment which consists of Putonghua speaking skills and 'China-knowledge', this "endowment effect" can somewhat explain the assimilation pattern as these two skills are becoming increasingly important after the handover of Hong Kong sovereignty the author estimates the effect of this endowment on Chinese immigrants assimilation patterns. Methodologically, the author answers these two research questions through the triangulation of quantitative and qualitative approach. In quantitative analysis, six Hong Kong census datasets are employed and fifteen individual in-depth interviews scripts are analyzed in qualitative side. The author expects the validity of assimilation hypothesis depends on different economic circumstances. The major contribution of this thesis is to find out in what particular situation the assimilation hypothesis is true, and qualitative results are employed to explain why the assimilation patterns are proved to be different between male and female, amongst various marital statuses, industries and occupations.

How could top-down and bottom-up approaches be used to explain recruitment and recognition of commercial bank staff in Barbados, from 1997 to present?

Babb, Jasmine Ianthi 2013 (has links)
Top-down and bottom-up approaches for trade union organising have become popular debates in industrial relations and critical considerations for unions hoping for a renewed status. This study investigated recruitment and recognition of white-collar workers in commercial banks in Barbados during the period 1997 to present in terms of centralised/top-down and workplace/bottom-up union approaches. Case study design was used to examine this phenomenon in five commercial banks by conducting 32 face-to-face interviews with shop stewards, union officials and bank managers involved in the recruitment and recognition processes. Five focus groups were held with shop stewards and documents and archival information were also used. This thesis shows that the Barbados Workers’ Union had initially used a top-down approach to gain recognition in the commercial banks but was initially unsuccessful; however, organisational contexts such as restructuring/reorganising, mergers/acquisitions and a lack of grievance resolution resulted in employee grievances. These grievances included job security, pay equity, and a need for grievance resolution procedure and employee voice which were used by the rank-and-file activists in their bottom-up mobilisation. Evidence from the study showed that the top-down approach was supported by the bottom-up approach once the grievances were framed by activists at the workplace. The findings have shown that when management’s actions create conditions conducive to mobilisation and grievances result which are common to most staff, mobilisation is likely once rank-and-file activists are willing to agitate for unionisation. Further, that once this bottom-up approach supports the top-down approach in a multidimensional way that top-down and bottom-up could contribute to successful recruitment and recognition campaigns. Evidence from this research suggests that rank-and-file mobilisation should be considered along with top-down strategies to increase the chance of recognition. The study contributes to research on top-down and bottom-up approaches and particularly to understanding the workplace dimensions for mobilisation.
