Do Unions Impede or Accelerate Structural Adjustment? Industrial versus Company Unions in an Industrialising Labour Market
Trades unions potentially have both beneficial and adverse effects for workers and for employing enterprises. In recent supply-side "structural adjustment" strategies, particularly in developing countries, it has been widely presumed that unions have adverse effects and constitute a major source of "market distortion" and labor market rigidity. This paper, based on a survey of nearly 3,000 industrial enterprises in Malaysia, examines this proposition empirically, considering a wide range of possible effects. It considers whether workers and/or employers should prefer to avoid unions or to have independent industrial unions or "company unions." Copyright 1992 by Oxford University Press.
