A Comparative Study of Trade Union Educational Approaches to Globalization


Abstract
The goal of the research is to create an analysis of the globalization related educational practices within the IG Metall and the UAW, especially in regards to strengthening international worker solidarity. Expected findings are that the educational programs, while deeply embedded in the national discourses and settings, may not necessarily support global solidarity. However, commonalities in both experience and ideology should be uncovered which can be used as building blocks for the future enrichment of educational programs within both unions.
