Trade Union and Employee Relations
For example, Hotel Bauen in Buenos Aires has been working under the operational control since 2003. Companies with local government workers are working successfully in a competitive economy for decades. This “re-opening” of organizations has led to the recovery of many factories under company worker self-management in Argentina. Also, many plants in Spain have been updated. The famous LIP factory in France got reopened in 1970, and became a symbol of Cultural Revolution in Paris (Dine, 2007). The main purpose of a trade union is the protection of the interests of the employees against capitalist tendencies of organizations. This union prevents unfair treatment, inhuman work hours, layoffs and other problems that are faced by the employees of any organization. These unions are generally backed by political parties and this generates additional support against organizational vices. There are often multiple trade unions in a single organization due to different groups of employees committing to different political viewpoints.
A process of politicization of the trade union movement began under the influence of Marxists (Social Democrats) and anarchists. One example of this process is the history of the international festival “May Day”, when in 1886 , May 4, protests took place as a result of provocation in several deaths. There was a bomb, but it has not been found. Yet, on a false charge four workers were subsequently executed as anarchists. Three years later, at the Paris Congress (1889) May 1 was proclaimed ‘May Day’ in memory of the executed anarchists.
