This is a book about how global unionism was born in the maritime shipping sector. It argues that the industrial structure of shipping, and specifically the interconnected nature of shipping production chains, facilitated the globalization of union bargaining strategy, and the transnationalization of union structures for mobilizing industrial action. This, in turn, led to global collective bargaining institutions and effective union participation in global regulatory politics. This study uses a variety of source and analytical techniques, relying heavily on interviews with union official and other maritime industry people in many countries.

Industrielle Beziehungen, Jahrgang 13, Heft 3, 2006 Schwerpunktheft Globalisierung und transnationale Arbeitsbeziehungen herausgegeben von Torsten Müller, Hans-Wolfgang Platzer, Stefan Rüb Ziele Industrielle Beziehungen sind jene Netzwerke, Institutionen und Systeme, in die die verschiedenen Akteure der Arbeitswelt eingebunden sind und mit denen sie ihre wirtschaftlichen Austauschverhältnisse und sozialen Konfliktbeziehungen faktisch gestalten und normativ regeln. Es reicht heute nicht mehr aus, diese Akteure mit dem traditionellen dichotomischen Modell von Kapital und Arbeit zu beschreiben; ihre mannigfache Ausdifferenzierung in Rollen, Koalitionen und Organisationen sowie ihre zunehmende Interdependenz machen komplexere Analysekonzepte erforderlich. In angelsächsischen Ländern konnten sich Industrial Relations schon früh als eigenständiges Wissenschafts- und Praxisgebiet etablieren. Im deutschen Sprachraum fand dieses Feld nur bei einem kleinen Kreis von Fachleuten aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen Aufmerksamkeit, obwohl die deutsche institutionelle Lösung des industriellen Konflikts wegen seines Erfolgs in vielen Ländern mit großem Interesse studiert wurde. In jüngster Zeit werden den industriellen Beziehungen auch in Deutschland größere Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet. Es sind vor allem die organisatorischen und technischen Umwälzungen in der Arbeitswelt und die politischen Veränderungen in Europa, die Wissenschaftler und Praktiker vor neue Herausforderungen stellen. Die europäische Einigung provoziert den Vergleich der historisch herausgebildeten nationalen Systeme industrieller Beziehungen und wirft die Frage auf nach ihrer Leistungsfähigkeit für die Konflikt- und Problemverarbeitung in einer dynamischen, vom globalen Wettbewerb bestimmten Wirtschaft. Industrielle Beziehungen werden nunmehr auch als zentrale Aufgabe des Managements gesehen. Der Untertitel – Arbeit, Organisation und Management – trägt diesen Veränderungen Rechnung. Die Zeitschrift will den genannten Wandel zum Thema machen und bietet allen an den industriellen Beziehungen Interessierten ein aktuelles Forum der Analyse und Diskussion.

Unions have long been a central force in the democratization of national and global governance, and this timely book examines the role of labor in fighting for a more democratic and equitable world. In a clear and compelling narrative, Dimitris Stevis and Terry Boswell explore the past accomplishments and the formidable challenges still facing global union politics. The authors consider whether global union politics has become more active and more influential or has failed to rise to the challenge of global capitalism. All readers interested in global organizations, governance, and social movements will find this deeply informed work an essential resource.

The Union Makes Us Strong

American labour history is typically interpreted by scholars as a history of defeat. Hidden by this conventional wisdom are a handful of militant unions that did not follow the putative Congress of Industrial Organizations trajectory. Based on three years of ethnographic research, this book examines a union that organised itself to systematically challenge management's rule on the shopfloor: San Francisco's longshore union. American unionism looks quite different than conventional wisdom suggests when everyday union practices are observed. American labour's trajectory, this book argues, is neither inevitable nor determined; militant, democratic forms of unionism are possible in the United States; and collective bargaining does not automatically eliminate contests for workplace control. The contract is a bargain that reflects and reproduces fundamental disagreement; it states how production and conflict will proceed.

Another chapter reviews the current conditions of work and life in the shipping industry, concerning wages, hours of work, food, accommodation and welfare as well as certain issues such as gender and abandonment of seafarers, with particular emphasis on shipboard conditions.
