Industrial relations in Europe 2012
This executive summary of the report looks at how industrial relations have evolved since our last edition in 2010. As the financial crisis has developed into a sovereign debt crisis, government reforms have had a fundamental impact on relations between employers, trade unions and public authorities. Whilst social dialogue had been a factor of resilience in overcoming the early effects of the crisis, its duration and depth has now resulted in an unfavourable setting for social dialogue. Nevertheless the summary highlights the importance of continued wellstructured dialogue and underscores the... Commission’s commitment to support and promote it moving forward.
