A new start for social dialogue  (21/05/2015)

Catalog N. : KE-02-15-354-EN-N

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.

Sintesi del rapporto sulle relazioni industriali in Europa 2012  (18/06/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-AV-13-001-IT-N

La presente sintesi analizza come le relazioni industriali si sono evolute dall'ultima edizione del 2010. La crisi finanziaria si è trasformata in una crisi del debito sovrano e le riforme dei governi hanno esercitato un'influenza significativa sulle relazioni tra datori di lavoro, sindacati e autorità pubbliche. Mentre il dialogo sociale si è dimostrato un fattore determinante per superare i primi effetti della crisi, la durata e l'intensità di quest'ultima hanno reso il contesto per il dialogo sociale molto sfavorevole. La sintesi sottolinea tuttavia l'importanza di proseguire un dialogo ben strutturato e l'impegno della Commissione per sostenerlo e portarlo avanti.

Industrial Relations in Europe 2012  (11/04/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-AS-12-001-EN-C

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.

This report is available in printed format in English.
