Abstract

Enterprise unions are labor unions organized and controlled by a membership employed within a single enterprise. Enterprise unions are usually referenced as Japanese-style enterprise-based labor unions, which have formed industrial federations and made up the majority of union membership in Japan since the 1960s. Thus, there are two approaches to defining “enterprise unions”: the first is to examine the characteristics of unions based on a single employer, and the other is to briefly examine their history and practice in Japan.
