The Japanese Employment System

Marcus Rebick (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Examines recent developments in industrial relations in Japan. The decline in union density is analysed and found to be due to a mixture of causes including sectoral shifts in employment and the failure of unions to organise new workplaces. The weakened role of the Shunto in the early 2000s and the increase in civil litigation and court-mediated dispute resolution are symptoms of the declining role of unions. Japanese labour relations are becoming more individualised.
