Abstract: I expect this paper will provide debate materials to contribute to a better understanding of the essence and challenges of industrial relations in Japan. I will separate industrial relations into those at large companies and those at small and medium-sized companies (SMEs), showing the ideal types respectively, and I would like to discuss the content and the historical formation processes of these.


Key words: labor-management communication; management resources; industrial relations
