Institutional resilience in a changing world economy? The case of the German banking and chemical industries
Muller-Camen, Michael (1997) Institutional resilience in a changing world economy? The case of the German banking and chemical industries. British Journal of Industrial Relations, 35 (4). pp. 609-626. ISSN 0007-1080
This paper examines whether there has been a transformation towards company-specific and unitarist industrial relations in Germany. On the basis of 25 case studies of employment practices in German and foreign-owned banks and chemical firms as well as industry data, the research found that the German system has so far remained relatively stable. Companies in the two industries studied generally still comply with the labour market institutions of multi-employer collective bargaining, workplace representation and initial vocational training. Pressures have been accommodated by changes within the system rather than by a radical change of the system.
