Labour Relations and the New Unionism in Contemporary Brazil (St. Antony's)
Mauricio Rands BarrosISBN: 031221846X;
This book shows how the Brazilian new unionism has changed the system of labor relations and assertion of workers' citizenship. By analyzing the current state of labor relations in Brazil and the role of the new unionism on the superseding of the corporate institutions inherited from the 1930s, it provides useful information and insights into Brazilian industrial relations and perspectives for change. Finally, by applying regression analysis to data collected in a survey with workers in Recife, a poor northeastern region, the author shows how the proposals advanced by the new unionism have successfully developed a new political culture he terms the "political culture of active citizenship."
