Resumé

The study looks at the articulation and the complex multi-level links between European and national levels of social dialogue. It examines the factors that facilitate as well as those that hinder the successful engagement of national social partners and their ability to promote their own interests effectively. It highlights the need to overcome some gaps in coordination, resources and capacities, particularly in those countries with underdeveloped structures of bilateral social dialogue at sectoral level linking to European-level social dialogue. The findings show that what is needed is a longer-term perspective on the multi-level governance of employment within the EU, one that would foster institution-building within sectoral social dialogue. Based on case studies and interviews with trade unions and employer organisations, the study illustrates that well-functioning national social dialogue is a key driver of positive and effective cooperation between all levels.

    Undersøgelse af sammenhængene mellem arbejdsmarkedsdialogen på EU-plan og nationalt plan

    Undersøgelsen ser på de komplekse sammenhænge på forskellige niveauer mellem arbejdsmarkedets dialog på europæisk og nationalt plan. Den undersøger faktorer, der dels letter, dels hæmmer vellykket involvering af de nationale arbejdsmarkedsparter, og om de er i stand til effektivt at fremme deres interesser. Den fremhæver behovet for at overvinde visse mangler på koordinering, ressourcer og kapacitet, især i lande med underudviklede strukturer. På grundlag af enkelttilfælde og interviews med fagforeninger og arbejdsgiverorganisationer viser undersøgelsen, at en velfungerende national arbejdsmarkedsdialog er en hoveddrivkraft for samarbejde mellem alle niveauer.
