Abstract  

The increasingly rigid traditional management methods, diversified interest demands of the new generation of employees, and frequent labor conflicts in enterprises have led to the decline of grass-roots labor unions in labor relations in China, and thus fell into the dual dilemma of organizations' reluctance to invest and employees' active abandonment. Based on the perspective of "instrument-emotion" dual path and the logical framework of "context-cognition", we intend to answer the important question of "whether strengthening the practical utility of labor unions can bring returns to enterprises" theoretically and empirically. Specifically, it explores whether instrumental/affective labor union practices can improve employees' sense of well-being at work by alleviating labor conflicts through the cross-level research method of measuring labor union practices at the organizational level and individual level respectively, and further studies the boundary conditions on this chain. We believe that it could reveal the substantial value of grass-roots trade unions in realizing win-win between labor and capital and their effect on employee well-being. It is not only an ethical response to the "conscientious research" of management science, but also an important strategy to strengthen the construction of grass-roots trade unions.

Keywords union practices      employee well-being      labor relation conflict      double-paths      new generation employees
