Resumen

STOESSEL, Soledad. Corporatism and political representation in Ecuador: the National Council on Work and Salaries. Universitas [online]. 2020, n.32, pp.139-156. ISSN 1390-8634.  https://doi.org/10.17163/uni.n32.2020.07.

The aim of this paper is to present the results of the research carried out to explore the dynamics of a corporate institution in Ecuador: The National Council on Salaries during the period 2007-2017. It was approached from two dimensions: its institutional design and the dispute around political representation. The implications of both dimensions in the management of the conflict between capital and labor, the democratic scope of the institution and the state autonomy to control the wage policy. The research was based on a methodology that combined regulatory, journal and official document analysis, and key informant interviews. Some conclusions refer to the rules of political representation of trade unions and business chambers, the reinforcement of the capital power, and the inclusive orientation of the Council in opening participation to historically excluded workers.
