Rüb | PlatzerDas Management als Akteur transnationaler Arbeitsbeziehungen

Transnational industrial relations are becoming increasingly significant due to the internationalisation of companies. Corporate management, as a key player in industrial relations, is therefore being faced with new cross-border challenges. This book fills a gap in research and provides an empirically substantiated and multifaceted portrait of employers’ strategies and practices. Its analysis highlights the frequent difficulties involved in internal management decision-making processes. It illustrates employers’ interests and guiding principles as well as their preferred institutions and instruments of transnational industrial relations. In addition, it describes and explains in which way and to what extent a company’s internationalisation profile, the political and legal frameworks at both a European and global level, the services offered by employers’ associations as well as the policies of employee representation influence management’s mode of action.
