Abstract

Governmental inducements, that is, organizational benefits conferred on labor organizations, are a necessary condition of support for economic reforms because of the high costs reforms impose on workers. However, the provision of governmental inducements is not sufficient. Labor organizations must also consider strategic constraints-accountability to the rank and file and horizontal competition among unions-that can undermine support for economic reforms. This framework to analyze contemporary labor strategies toward economic reform is applied to Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, and Poland.
