Services of Industrial Relations and Union Process Management

Industrial relations that emerged after the Industrial Revolution, brought forward a culture of collective bargaining and syndicalism as a result of economic activities in our information society. The effects of the collective bargaining system on income distribution, the share of wages in domestic income, and productivity have become important indicators in the growth rate of the economy and development in social justice as well as determining welfare levels of society.

Trade unions are worker and employer organizations that primarily seek to promote the interests and well-being of their members. While the labour unions aim to be the voice of the motions and demands of employees, employers’ unions aim to produce policies on behalf of member workplaces against labour unions in order to ensure sustainable continuation of economic activities of employers.

Economic expectations of unions, especially on wages, have expanded with the demands of social rights and fringe benefits. On the other hand, employers consider wages and other benefits as a package while making competitive and value creation decisions and aim for balanced and realistic policies together with other expense items.

With these improvements, young labour force, surpluses in labour force excluding employments, world trade, globalization policies and our position as a developing country are main factors that make industrial relations more complicated.
