Representativeness in graphical sector in Europe / Eurofound News, February 2016
A new representativeness study from Eurofound looks at the graphical sector in Europe. Deeply affected by the economic crisis, with no real sign of recovery, the sector faces a number of challenges, not least the rise of the internet as a source of information and advertising as well as globalised competition, leading to job losses and overcapacity. The study is the first in a new wave, carried out at the request of the European Commission, which aims to identify the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. In addition to its analysis of the employment and economic trends of the sector, this latest study finds that UNI Europa Graphical and Intergraf are the most important European-level social partner organisations, based on their membership.
