Labour in the Global South
Challenges and Alternatives for WorkerseBook - 2012
"The twenty-first century has posed serious challenges to workers -- formal and informal, organized and unorganized -- around the world. It has also brought to the fore extraordinarily creative responses, forcing us to think beyond our common understandings of "labour", effective trade union strategies and forms of power. Challenging the global North's dominance in the literature, Labour in the Global South presents alternative approaches as well as creative responses to the challenges facing labour in the global South, in countries such as Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, India, South Africa and Uruguay. The volume devotes particular attention to areas often neglected by organized labour: the relationship between ecology, climate change and jobs; unionizing service work; the dynamics of trade union-political party alliances; gender; and new forms of solidarity. It brings together a group of distinguished labour scholars and practitioners who make an important advance with their rich empirical case studies."--Publisher's website.
