Abstract

The A. argues that far from being surpassed by globalization, the nation-state remains a key space for organized labour. While labour geographers have recognized the significance of new forms of work organization, they have not examined how unions determine the trajectory of workplace change. Based on case studies of unions in the Canadian and German auto industries, the AA. stress that the linkage between national and workplace scales remains critical to understanding how unions are responding to the challenges being presented by lean and just in time production.
