Industrial Relations BMA341

Hobart

Introduction

This unit offers students an opportunity to pursue advanced study in the discipline of industrial relations (IR).  Upon completion of the unit students will be able to explain the influence of culture in approaches to IR, plan and contribute to a negotiation and identify and critically evaluate contemporary issues in IR with reference to theories of power and conflict.

A comparative approach to the study of IR is adopted in this unit; students will compare and contrast key IR concepts from a number of cultural perspectives.  Theories of power and conflict will be explored, leading to a detailed analysis of collective bargaining, negotiation and advocacy in the work place context.

The unit is multi-disciplinary in approach and incorporates research from sociology, politics, history and law.  There is a strong focus on practical application of theoretical concepts in real-world situations.
