Work and Employment Relations in the Automobile Industry by Elsie Charron

Work and Employment Relations in the Automobile Industry


Work and Employment Relations in the Automobile Industry by Elsie Charron

This book examines the form and character of the internationalisation of employee relations in the automobile industry. It goes on to examine the impact of the new forms of regionalization and their impact on employment relations within firms. Case studies are used to examine the transformation of employment standards, including General Motors, Toyota, Renault, FIAT and Peugeot. The book also assesses the significance of the emergence of regional integration processes in the form of regional economic spaces (EC, Nafta, Mercusor and ASEAN).
