Wal-Mart's Chinese union, Part II

Walmart_3Last month I posted here about the union formed in one of Wal-Mart's stores in China. Here's some more commentary on the issue by Anita Chan of Australian National University (whom I quoted in the original post). While recognizing the degree of government control over worker organizations, Dr. Chan argues that this union has some potential to be meaningful. For a less sanguine view, with which Dr. Chan specifically takes issue, see this report by China Labour Bulletin.
