Abstract


The paper improves a model of trade union movement and industrial relations in TNSTC , based on a questionnaire survey of members of the trade union. This article examines factors that influence the ability and willingness of trade union members to take on unpaid roles at the level of the branch and region. The article compares the movement and industrial relations in relation to potential barriers to union participation. Participation at both branch and regional levels is found to be associated with collective orientations and the extent to which members feel encouraged by TNSTC  to become active within the union. The findings point to the importance of union efforts to encourage members to take on lay representative roles and participate in union governance.
