The course is designed to provide knowledge of one of the key environmental inputs of the industrial relations system — that being the labour market. Traditionally, the term industrial relations is used to cover such aspects of industrial life as trade unionism, collective bargaining, workers’ participation in management, discipline and grievance handling, industrial disputes and interpretation .
The course will enable you to read statistical studies intelligently and critically. The theoretical analysis is supplemented by empirical evidence related to the Canadian labour market.
Topics covered include competitive labour markets and the incidence of payroll taxes; employee behaviour, the labour-leisure choice model and alternative work-time arrangements; firm strategy, production, costs, present value, and fringe benefits; the impacts of unions and collective bargaining on the labour market; the impact of the macroeconomic environment on various HR and IR outcomes such as strike activity, union certifications and the magnitude of wrongful dismissal awards; the impact of government monetary and fiscal policy on unemployment, inflation and wage settlements.

The course will explore the basic nature of the employment relationship from formation to termination, minimum standards legislation and regulations including human rights lawand collective bargaining law.
Students will develop an understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of the field and examine individual, group, and organizational processes that shape how people act and interact with others at work.
The major learning objectives are to learn how OB theories and principles help build and foster a high performing workplace, to learn how OB theory and research can influence HR program design and evaluation, and to strengthen critical analysis skills to evaluate current organizational concepts and challenges.
IRE H1 This course introduces students to emerging trends in international policy in key labour and human resource issues. Although national laws governing employment have been in place for a long time, these regulations have proved inadequate to address all the challenges in a world economy that is increasingly linked across nations, regions and continents.
The course also examines codes of conduct and similar other private attempts to regulate labour conditions and the role of international corporations. The key theme for the course is the creation of alignment between business strategy and objectives, structure, and what it is that people are actually doing to create value, personally and professionally.

It briefly explores the history of industrial relations leading to contemporary issues and events through the lens of key sociological thinkers such as Marx, Durkheim, Weber and Michels. Students are therefore introduced to classical theories and then these perspectives are applied to analyze current labour market and employment relationships.
The objective of this course is first to demonstrate how an understanding of industrial relations can be informed and enriched by classical and contemporary sociological perspectives. Second, it is to enable students to familiarise themselves with sociological perspectives so that they can compare and contrast, support or oppose, distinct approaches to industrial relations and the nature of work.
This new familiarity will facilitate a critical view of the theories that will be explored and applied in the course. Financial crises that began on Wall Street spread to government takeovers of automobile companies that included imposed concessionary bargaining on both sides of the Canada-US border.
Countries around the world — both developed and developing —, their business sectors, citizens and workers have all been coping simultaneously with this crisis.
This course focuses on a number of themes that globalization and the new economy raise for workers, unions and the state.
Through seminar discussions, presentations and the completion of a research essay, students will have the opportunity to explore these themes in greater depth and come to an appreciation of the increasing complexity of industrial relations in a globalizing world.
TOP IRE H Labour Relations Problems in Historical Perspective This graduate course in industrial relations is conducted as a seminar, which examines current issues in labour relations, and investigates their historical background as a way of placing them in historical perspective.
The approach is interdisciplinary, and the readings and discussions relate the present to the past and vice versa. Historical methodology and historiography are not covered, as the course is intended to supplement the study of industrial relations with a selection of readings pertinent to current themes.
