“Gains and pitfalls of coalitions: Societal resources as sources of trade union power in Croatia and Poland”, Hrvoje Butković et al. (IRMO, Croatia)

Hrvoje Butković from IRMO together with Jan Czarzasty (Warsaw School of Economics) and Adam Mrozowicki (University of Wrocław) published this article in the European Journal of Industrial Relations (EJIR) which is abstracted and indexed in Scopus and the Social Sciences Citation Index. This article explores the experiences of trade unions in Croatia and Poland with societal power resources as a source of trade union revitalisation in the post-2008 crisis period. It discusses what happens when unions are forced to build political coalitions due to the scarcity of other power resources and what are the dangers and benefits of such actions. It is a part of the EJIR special issue on trade union innovation in Central and Eastern Europe edited by Magdalena Bernaciak, Marta Kahancová and Aurora Trif.
