Realities, Theories, and Explanations
This chapter compares the structural features of the economies and the organizational profiles of labor unions in Korea and Taiwan. It examines the effects of authoritarian legacies and partisan coalitions that have critically molded the interests, capacities, and strategies of labor unions under democratic governments and highlights the importance of democratic institutions and the extent of democratic representation of labor interests in the making of national variations of union activism. This chapter explains that labor unions alienated from political institutions and partisan allies are more likely to pursue radical mobilization strategies.
