There is declining influence of trade unions in ensuring better job security and social security for their members. But the presence of a union in an enterprise came to be more important over 2004-2005 to 2011-2012 as the situation became worse for workers in enterprises without it. These changes are stronger in public/private limited companies compared with other enterprises. The situation is worse for pink-collar and blue-collar workers as for them these changes are manifested through deterioration in situation of union members and workers in enterprises without union unlike the case of whitecollar workers where the changes took place through improvement of nonunion members.

Abstract


There is declining influence of trade unions in ensuring better job security and social security for their members. But the presence of a union in an enterprise came to be more important over 2004-2005 to 2011-2012 as the situation became worse for workers in enterprises without it. These changes are stronger in public/private limited companies compared with other enterprises. The situation is worse for pink-collar and blue-collar workers as for them these changes are manifested through deterioration in situation of union members and workers in enterprises without union unlike the case of whitecollar workers where the changes took place through improvement of nonunion members.
