This is an account of how unions in the Scandinavian countries have managed to secure the world's highest rates of organization: The countries in which they operate are welfare states and are among the wealthiest countries in the world, yet remarkably little is known about the systems of industrial relations that have contributed to these results.

The World's Strongest Trade Unions
Open to the public ; HD The University of Melbourne Library. University of Western Australia Library. Despite the general decline of trade unions throughout the Western world, unions in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden have prospered. Galenson cites their ability to organize white collar workers, the special attention they give to recruitment of women, and their ability to undergo structural change under employer pressure.
He analyzes these factors in the belief that if unions in other parts of the world understand why and how unionism is succeeding in Scandinavia, its deterioration may be slowed and even reversed. In doing so, Galenson offers specific advice on how industrial relations professionals should manage to avoid breakdown of existing systems elsewhere.
