The growth of mediation in China

by Geoff Sharp

From the blog mediator blah...blah...

Nestled beside a post advising that reincarnating Tibetan Buddhas must obtain Chinese Government approval in future comes this interesting post on Monday over at China Briefing Blog on the growth of mediation in China.

Labor disputes in China are rising quickly with an annual growth rate of 27.3 % - so something needs to be done.

China is looking to deal with the crisis by a bill strengthening mediation so as to 'help fairly solve labor disputes without going to court and thus safeguard employee's legitimate rights and promote social harmony'

Under the bill workplace mediation committees made up of workers and management are to be established to solve disputes at grassroots level.

Sounds like communism.
