Industrial relations in China are undergoing profound changes. These changes were set in motion by reforms which ended centralised control of employment and wage fixing reintroduced labour markets and made negotiations on labour contracts and wages extremely one-sided. Trade unions which had no responsibility for collective bargaining under the socialist command economy are now being challenged under the new dispensation to act as representatives of the workers under market conditions while continuing to be under the tutelage of the party.
