A New China for Organized Labor – Li Jianming

From The BusinessWeekly Online:

A top official of China’s only union discusses duking it out with Wal-Mart, recruiting migrants, and gearing up for arbitration

Li Jianming, 53, is a Beijing-based division chief of the All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU), the 80-year-old official union that today has 137 million worker members spread across China. He has spent almost two decades working within the ACFTU, which now faces the task of sustaining membership as China shifts from a planned state economy to a market-based one. Also, some local governments fear that encouraging the union to open in their cities will frighten away overseas investment.
