Linguistic Tensions in Canadian and Belgian Labor Unions: A Comparative Analysis Based on the Interrelationship between Pursued Objectives and the Accompanying Organizational Structure.
The relationships between language groups in labor unions in Canada and Belgium are examined. Details of the labor movement in the two countries and characteristics of specific unions are discussed. It is concluded that, while the situation between French and Dutch speakers in Belgian unions appears stable, linguistic relations between French and English speakers in Canadian unions are characterized by a high degree of instability and tension.
