Abstract

In Malaysia, women workers in the garment and textile industries have their own trade union in each state but only 12% of workers in these industries are in the garment and textile workers' trade union. This is both a reflection of the decline of trade union power in Malaysia and unions' attitudes towards women. This paper questions male leadership attitudes towards women and how the largely female workforce in the garment industry has negotiated this lineal space.
