Worker Activism and Collective Bargaining
China's workers are increasingly well-organized: They are often able to elect their own representatives and successfully engage in collective bargaining.
A new report by CLB argues that the only way to resolve the decades-long problems endemic in China’s construction industry is through the creation of a sectoral trade union that can effectively bargain with industry bosses.
Trade Union Reform and Accountability
China's workers lack real trade union representation. CLB and our mainland partners encourage workers to reclaim the union for themselves.
Truckers’ deaths demonstrate once again the importance of union representation for China’s fast-growing logistics sector
Work safety in China
Work safety is one of the most serious issues affecting China's workers: Employers and the government need to take it seriously too.
Of the 507 incidents recorded on CLB’s Work Accident Map so far this year, 148 (29 percent) were caused by a collision with a motor vehicle. Of these incidents, 70 involved sanitation workers and 69 involved delivery drivers.
