3MANAGEMENT OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS1.0 IntroductionVanuatu since its independence in the year 1980 has been developing noticeably. Beingstretched over 12,200 kilometres, the republic is constituted of approximately 83 islands andprovides home to 286,759 people. It is noted that among the many South Pacific micro states,New Hebrides became to be the first host centre of for trade unionism. Concerning recenttrends there has been a downfall in trade unionism and membership in the nation. Despite ofstrongly built developmental objectives, the presence of major constraints significantlyaffects its achievement. According to Lansford (2014, p. 131), poor infrastructure, degradedcommunication and scattered population are recognized to be the most adversely affectingfactors. Moreover, the lowered GDP (4.0%) and financial downturn tends to be affectingdevelopment in Vanuatu as well.This particular project takes into consideration the several factors that affect trade unionismand its membership in the republic of Vanuatu. Further, various examples has also beenincluded to compare and contrast outcomes with defined objectives. 2.0 DiscussionAs per Blackburn et al. (2016, pp. 101-159), the Prague meeting in the year 1978 resulted inan overall effort to set up trade unions across the South Pacific region. Since the meeting ofWFTU, many leaders like John Halfpenny, Ken Douglas and Jin Knox have made greatefforts to mould unions not only in the pacific, but also all over Vanuatu. Additionally, anumber of important factors such as anti-colonialism and many others have also been takeninto consideration to ensure a productive union. However, leaders in republic complained thatthe ‘downunder’ representatives have not made noticeable attempts themselves to build up along lasting unionism (Weber, 2017, pp. 1089-1101). On the other hand, the poor economicconditions of the state have also contributed to the weak development of trade unions as well.
