- This study analyzes the industrial relations at the enterprise level in Taiwan which has experienced the process of democratization since the end of the 1980"s. Previous studies on the Taiwanese industrial relations have mainly been concerned with the industrial relations at the national level. We, on the contrary, are trying to clarify the industrial relations at the enterprise level.
There has been some development of labor movement in Taiwan since the abolition of martial law in 1987. A number of independent unions were organized, and labor disputes proliferated. However, the industrial relations at the enterprise level is still far from democratic. Labor unions are not fully independent of employers. Members" participation in union is weak. The number of unions which have genuine collective agreements is small. Workers prefer to rely on informal networks rather than union or collective action in settling their grievances. The labor peace in Taiwan is based on the lack of union power within firms rather than on the conciliation of interests between employers and workers.
