    Abstract

    Whereas there has been considerable interest in the concept of political corporate
    social responsibility (CSR), trade unions have been largely omitted from such
    scholarly discussion. This article explores the potential of trade unions as the other
    in political CSR and the contribution of trade unions to deliberative democracy with
    the firm. We discuss the importance both of the legitimacy and the efficacy of the
    other in political CSR. We proceed to assess trade unions as legitimate and effective
    deliberative partners with the firm towards CSR, evaluating the contribution of trade
    unions to deliberative democracy and also the potential outcomes for trade unions in adopting this role.
