China experiences the change of industrial relation which changed with the social transformation. The traditional relationship between employees and their work units is supposed harmony, as almost all factories and enterprises are owned by the state. With the reform and opening to the outside police, the pure industrial relation has become multiple, private and foreign business appear. However, China Labor Law has not suited to the situation, which covers only employees in urban and cities, and does not includes the peasant workers who become main forces in many industries, such as mining, construction. The peasant workers do not have social welfare and medical insurance, no trade unions to protect them when injured or lay off. That is the social background for lots of social problems happen.
I come to Netherlands to study the industrial relation which seems relative balance and harmony, as it has been reported the lowest on work hour lose by strikes in the west countries. I want to know the trade unions in Netherlands and law about work place health and safety.
