Abstract

The dynamic and organizationally complex, South Korean labor movement presents a unique opportunity for studying union membership participation. The uniqueness of this opportunity suggests that research designs which are adopted from U.S. research for researching South Korean labor unions should be consistent with the organizational complexities of unions, the labor law, and the culture of employment relations in South Korea. The “dual image” of South Korean labor union organization which is developed in this paper helps to reconceive U.S. concepts of “union membership participation,” “union democracy” and “union bureaucracy” for the South Korean labor movement. The “dual image” of South Korean labor union organization is also helpful for developing hypotheses about the determinants of membership participation inside South Korean labor unions.
