Videnskabelig artikel af Patrick Gunnigle, Valeria Pulignano, Tony Edwards, María J Belizón, Steen E. Navrbjerg, Karen M Olsen, and Lourdes Susaeta

This paper has three principal aims:

  • It firstly provides some theoretical background on the key current research issues and challenges in regard to industrial relations in multinational companies.
  • It then presents a concise review of scholarship to date on industrial relations in multinational companies using INTREPID (Investigation of Transnationals’ Employment Practices: an International Database) data.
  • Finally, the paper identifies some of the main industrial relations issues that remain to be addressed, in effect charting a form of research agenda for future work using the INTREPID data, with particular focus on the potential contribution from ‘late joiners’ to the INTREPID project.
