Considering the important role that social dialogue plays for the European social model by promoting competitiveness, fairness, economic prosperity and social well-being, the European Commission is working to promote social dialogue across the EU. At the heart of this effort is the ‘new start for social dialogue’, a joint endeavour by EU institutions and social partners that aims to further strengthen social dialogue at the EU and national levels.

Social dialogue refers to the discussions, consultations, negotiations and joint actions that take place between the social partners, namely employers and trade unions, on a wide range of social and work-related issues.
At EU level, social dialogue was launched in 1985 by President Delors at Val Duchesse. Since then, social dialogue has been considered crucial to promote competitiveness and fairness and to enhance economic prosperity and social well-being. Developing and fostering social dialogue is an essential element of the European social model. European social dialogue complements and supports national social dialogue and industrial relations.

Dette resumé af rapporten kigger på, hvordan arbejdsmarkedsrelationerne har udviklet sig siden vores sidste udgivelse i 2010. Efter at den økonomiske krise har udviklet sig til en suveræn gældskrise har regeringsreformer haft en væsentlig indvirkning på forholdet mellem arbejdsgiver, fagforeninger og offentlige myndigheder. Mens social dialog gav den nødvendige fleksibilitet til at overvinde de første effekter af krisen, har varigheden og omfanget nu resulteret i en ugunstig situation for den sociale dialog. Ikke desto mindre understreges vigtigheden af fortsat velstruktureret dialog i sammenfatningen, og Kommissionens engagement for at støtte og fremme udviklingen af social dialog fremhæves.

This report reviews trends and developments in the relationship between workers, employers, their respective representatives and public authorities at national and EU level during 2010-12. It looks at how the continuing crisis and reforms implemented in response may be having a more fundamental impact on industrial relations, as conflict is increasing. In certain countries, fiscal consolidation has resulted in unfavourable settings for social dialogue, especially in the public sector, where reforms have been accelerated. Despite this the report concludes that structured social dialogue is still the right approach for building consensus and ensuring the sustainability of economic and social reforms.
