Industrial relations define the existing relationship between employees and employers. Industrial relations however encompass a wider scope of relationships since it also looks into the triangular relationship between employers, employees, and the government. It presents the wider view of the relationships in the industrial players and the government. Industrial relations have been important for continued existence of a strong workforce representation which has ensured that workers issues are taken care of (Dufty, 2004). However, the nature of industrial relations has been changing with time owing to the emerging trends in labor management. From strong labor movement of the first half of twentieth century, most countries have witnessed the formation and growth of the human resource management which is acting as the main intermediary body between the workers and the management. Human resource managers play important roles in arbitration of labor issues in modern organizations. However, the department is usually under the control of industrial management and hence it cannot be considered full representative of the employees’ welfare. The roles of unions in industrial relations therefore continue to be important in determining the landscape of employee-employer relationship.
