Scaling Up? Transnational Labour Organising in Globalised Production
Globalisation has led to globally interconnected production structures and the spread of global value chains and production networks. Globalised production not only influences economic development prospects, but also working conditions and wages as well as workers’ power and struggles. This special issue is dedicated to labour organising in the context of globalised production. Based on case studies from different sectors and world regions, the authors advance conceptual debates and provide empirical insights into the complexity of the politics of scale in organising efforts. The contributions go beyond trade unions, looking at different union and non-union actors and how they work together at the transnational level. They analyse power relations, structures and practices that enable or hinder (transnational) labour organising.
