Trade Unions are militant in the UK, Germany, France etc. They werre out on the street striking work when their genuine demands pertaining to wages commensurate with the cost of living and sevice conditions were not met. But, they never dstroyed the machinery and equipments of the factories which provided them with a means to survival. But in India, particularly in certain sates where the workers are too militant, the workers do everything to destroy the establishment which sustained their lives. For example, in the good old days of trade union militancy in my state, the Electricity Board employees (the highest paid in the state where a lineman drew more than a District Educational Officer ..! )used to resort to sabotage in the Powerhouses, Substations etc. Their favourite target was the tall 11KV, 66KV towers which were made to fall on ground, removing the bolts from the base platform..The State Transport workers (The most uncivilised lot in the early days of trade union militancy) ...more

Nope. That is my simple answer. To a lesser extent, there is another country which has been badly affected by the militant trade unions. That is NEPAL. The absence of law enforcement is the main reason for the existence of militant trade unionism. All other reasons are well known to everyone and people get upset here if you try to call a spade a spade.

These sort of disruptive strikes happen in trade unions when they bureaucratize. Countries like France and India and a few others fell victim 2 this whereas countries like UK and Germany escaped.

When u have a bureaucratic trade union dealing w/a bureaucratic government, u have a very violent romance explosion. In a bureaucratic trade union setup, u have a union leader representing union members and on the other side u have govt representatives and the management of the factory in question.

Usually, the issue starts over agenuine concern. However, the industry management and the govt only want to do fast solution. It doesn't matter if it's a real 1 but they just want a quick 1. So they lure the trade union leader and get them on their side for lucrative money. So now, u have a trade union leader who has seen money.....and he ge ...more
