Three transformations of Singapore's industrial relations have been discernible since1959, when the Peoples Action Party (PAP) was elected into office, and 1986. There was an interregnum between 1987 and 1997, when Singapore experienced a long decade of economic growth and such modifications to its industrial relations system as were made, were not transformational. The Asian economic crisis of 1997 triggered a fourth transformation ― one that has implications for the broader debate about the future of work in industrial market economies ― under the official rubric of 'Manpower Planning'. The aim of this paper is to apply a strategic choice model to explain this latest transformation. The paper concludes that a strategic choice approach is an appropriate heuristic for the transformation of Singapore's industrial relations system.
