dc.description.abstract Surprise, surprise, it is the All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU), the trade union notorious throughout the world for being useless, that has taken on Wal-Mart and succeeded in setting up workplace union branches. Within a period of four weeks, it set up branches at twenty-two Wal-Mart supercenters. The Western mass media1 and some of the Chinese media coverage have been dismissive, on the presumption that the ACFTU does not really act like a trade union. Western reporters have indicated that Wal-Mart has finally found a union that it can live with. But has nothing positive emerged from the organizing of Wal-Marts stores? Is the ACFTU a dinosaur that never changes? Or, could there be reformers from within the ACFTU pushing for change?
