The rapid privatisation of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in China over the last five years has resulted in significant change in the country's industrial relations. In order to achieve social stability the Chinese Government is eager to formalise the trade unionism and establish a system of protection of workers' rights. The recent and rapid increase in the number of labour disputes is an indication of workers' seeking the realisation of these rights, as does the emergence of rival trade unions and worker's congresses in new enterprises and communities. These latter could become the bases of independent unions in China and the precursors to an eventual transformation of Chinese industrial relations. China has established a tripartite labour negotiation, regional collective contracts, labour dispute arbitration and labour legal surveillance-combined worker's rights protection system. Thus the institutions are increasingly in place for the establishment of a complete industrial relations system.
