This study explores trade union influence in Spanish and Brazilian organizations by means of the Cranet 2014 dataset. While some of the existing data suggest that trade unions may hold little power within surveyed organizations, we offer additional evidence contradicting this. We show how the true influence of trade unions can be much better understood by properly contextualizing Cranet data within the industrial relations systems of Spain and Brazil. Finally, we also explain how historical and institutional factors can help us understand the similarities as well as the differences observed in the way trade unions influence HRM in these two countries.
