Journal Title: Journal of Economics, Finance and Management Studies - Year 2018, Vol 1, Issue 01

Abstract

Today, ‘Trade unions’ prevail among most professionals, white-collar employees, managers, senior officials, and managers, highly paid employees in banks, in the Life Insurance Corporation and in many new institutions as well as among the Central Government and semi-government employees. They consider recourse to strikes, mass infrequent leaves, attempt to rule, dharnas, and gheraos for protecting their demand and hence bringing about some delicate problems for the concerned employers/managements requiring serious consideration. White collar trade unions are referred as the union of non-manual employees who come together and form the association in order to establish and protect its member’s rights. With the increasing number of white collar trade unions, the importance of white collar associations needs to be considered. So in this particular report, we have thoroughly discussed white collar trade unions from both international and national perspective. We have seen that internationally white collar trade unions came into action after the World War II. And in Bangladesh, white collar trade unions were first formed pre liberation war and after liberation war, the number of white collar unions has been increasing. Realizing the importance of white collar trade unions, in the international sector, many developed countries have adopted the trend of forming white collar associations for its white collar employees so that they have equal opportunities and facilities for blue collar employees. The primary objectives of this report is to outline the history of international white collar trade unions and discuss the current condition of international white collar trade unions internationally.
