THE DETERMINANTS OF TRADE UNION MEMBERSHIP GROWTH IN MALAYSIA
AbstractA new model of trade union membership growth in Malaysia for the period 1970-2000 is proposed. In the model we incorporate not only the economic factors but also the political factors as the explanatory variables. We find that increases in prices, rate of growth of gross domestic products and union density enhance union growth, while future increases in the unemployment rate and unfavorable political climate tend to inhibit membership growth.
