In the spotlight: CELSI Research Fellow Jan Czarzasty’s book "Collective Bargaining in the Shadow of Globalization. The role of trade unions in multinational corporations" (in Polish)
Published on Sept. 10, 2015
The book explores the increasingly important context for trade unions activity in the globalizing world: multinational companies. In the large part, the book consumes the results of an empirical study conducted in 2013 in 81 subsidiaries of multinationals operating in Poland. The book contributes to ongoing debates on the model of capitalism in the Central and Easter Europe (CEE). The results show that in an environment of weak institutions, large companies enjoy a lot of freedom in shaping their employment relations in general, and conducting collective bargaining, in particular.
The book is available in pdf form (in Polish):
