This chapter examines the influence of the varying relationships formed between labor unions and political parties on the nature of labor politics in democratized Korea and Taiwan. It describes the patterns of political party-labor union linkages and conditions that aided the formation of these partisan relations. The analysis of lawmakers' career profiles in the national legislature and workers' voting patterns reveals effective party-union linkages in Taiwan and the absence of such linkages in Korea.

Keywords:   labor unions, political parties, Korea, Taiwan, labor politics, partisan relations, lawmakers, workers' voting patterns
