Resumen

This report examines whether EU Member States are converging or diverging with regard to working conditions and quality of work and employment. While the findings reveal a relative divergence in Europe with the joining of the new Member States in 2004 and 2007, the results confirm that the gap is closing and that in some of the older Member States there is evidence of disimprovements in some areas, such as prevalence of work intensity and reduced access to training. Data from four European Working Conditions Surveys is used to compare trends across a fifteen-year time span. An executive summary is available.

    Convergencia y divergencia de las condiciones de trabajo en Europa: 1990–2005 - Resumen ejecutivo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La Fundación Europea para la Mejora de las Condiciones de Vida y de Trabajo (Eurofound) realizó en 2005 la cuarta Encuesta europea sobre condiciones de trabajo (EWCS), serie iniciada en 1990. En estos quince años, la Unión Europea ha experimentado importantes cambios en varios niveles. El presente informe examina principalmente dos cuestiones sometidas a investigación. En primer lugar, trata de observar, a través de las sucesivas ediciones de la EWCS, si se han producido a lo largo del tiempo movimientos relativos de convergencia o de divergencia en la calidad de la vida laboral. En segundo lugar, analiza si se han producido en ese mismo período movimientos similares entre los países europeos.
