multi-unionism

multi-unionism

the presence of a number of potentially competing TRADE UNIONS in a workplace or organization, accompanied in some organizations by separate COLLECTIVE BARGAINING arrangements. It is believed to have a detrimental effect on INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS because it encourages disputes over DEMARCATION LINES, PAY DIFFERENTIALS etc. Once an integral element of UK industrial relations, the rationalization of bargaining procedures and the decline in the number of unions have reduced its extent and significance.
