Looking at the change in work brought about by globalization, this text examines how global competitive pressures in Asia are transforming workplace relations and impacting on strategies of managers as well as the responses and behaviours of trade unions and employees. The volume brings together research from Australia and New Zealand, as well as from China, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore, to illuminate our understanding of what is actually happening to organizations, workforces, employee groupings and individual employees as a result of globalization and the intensification of global competition in Pacific Asia.


'A welcome addition to the fledging literature on this important subjec t… a substantial contribution towards broadening our understanding of an important, yet sparsely researched, aspect of the process of economic development in Pacific Asia.' - ASEAN Economic Bulletin
