The Trade-unions/Power relationships an historical survey (1880-1980)

Historical analysis of the trade-unions/Power relationships require a specific kind of typology including international and national political links as well as social and economic aims. We must refer to changes in the Catholic Church if we are to explain the course of the « moral trend » of french syndicalisms (CFTC/CFDT) or in the international Socialist movement for its « economic trend » (CGT/CGT-CGTU/CGT-CGT FO). There are two different versions of the trade-unions/Power relationship scheme. The « inside capitalism » one : trade unionism acts as a lobby, competes with parties for political influence and with the « new managers » in the field of social innovation, plays the part of a social « shadow cabinet » whose projects are welcome or not according to who is in charge in the government. The « outside capitalism » scheme is the result of trade union work as social laboratory ; but « trans-societal » organizations are not willing to realize it in the present state of economie structure, doubting whether the change of political power is enough to secure good social manoeuvering.
