Synopsis

Issues covered in the course include agreement making, the causes of industrial conflict, the role of trade unions and employer associations, IR legislation, negotiation, managing workforce diversity, recent developments in the organisation of work. The importance of the changing nature of work and employment within a global context is reflected in the course's coverage of issues relating to employment relations in the Asian context and a comparative study of two diverse international approaches to the workplace relationship. In an environment where global economic influences impact so readily on the regulation and policy of international industrial relations, this course will provide students with an understanding of employment relations both in Australia and overseas.
