Seminar 2 - Strathclyde Apr 2014

Strathclyde University, April 16 2014.

Aim: To explore the changing dynamics of workplace relations in the context of declining collective regulation and shifts towards individualistic HRM, the role of trade unionism in supporting and resisting regulation, the quest for mutual gains, and the suitability of the proposition to (re)theorise employment relations and HRM practices to account for the impact of supranational level regulations, as well as the reconfiguration of ‘rules’ at the national level.
