Abstract

The article reviews developments in industrial relations in Republic of Korea (Korea) and Indonesia as democratic principles have gained ground over authoritarian directives. Some of the features of the industrial relations regime during democratization ‘epoch’, include the embarking on efforts at overhauling legal framework, which underpin industrial relations from a more restrictive even suppressive one to regimes that emphasize respect for observation of human rights, including workers’ rights; strengthening of the bargaining clout of unionized labor especially in Korea where labor movement is better organized, though divided , still militant in its demands compared to those in Indonesia, which have been bedeviled by fractionalization, paucity of labor management education, finances, and implementing regulations that undermine the spirit of labor laws. Doubtless, labor strength has translated into an increase in wages, improvement in the observation of workers’ rights, and inevitably higher labor cost, especially for labor intensive industries.
