The representativeness of social partners provides legitimacy for their various roles in industrial relations, whether through the vehicle of social dialogue, collective bargaining or involvement in government policymaking or implementation. This report compares the different ways in which the representativeness of social partners is defined at national, European and international levels. It shows that representativeness has various meanings across the 28 Member States and Norway, with most countries featuring a combination of legal conformity and mutual recognition. Based on information provided by national correspondents in the 28 EU Member States and Norway, the report analyses the concept of representativeness at national level by reviewing key elements such as electoral success, organisational strength in terms of membership, and the capacity to negotiate. The final section turns to the methodology used by Eurofound to assess representativeness since 1996 and raises the question as to whether this approach should be refined or modified after 10 years of application. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    El concepto de representatividad a escala nacional, internacional y europea

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    La representatividad de los interlocutores sociales les proporciona legitimidad para el desempeño de sus funciones en las relaciones industriales, bien mediante el vehículo del diálogo social, o bien mediante la negociación colectiva o la participación en la elaboración o la ejecución de políticas gubernamentales. Este informe compara las distintas formas de definir la representatividad de los interlocutores sociales a escala nacional, europea e internacional. Demuestra que la representatividad tiene diversos significados en los 28 Estados miembros y Noruega, y que en la mayoría de los países existe una combinación de conformidad jurídica y reconocimiento mutuo. Basándose en la información facilitada por los corresponsales nacionales de los 28 Estados miembros de la UE y Noruega, el informe analiza el concepto de representatividad a escala nacional mediante la revisión de elementos clave, como el éxito electoral, la fuerza organizativa en términos de afiliación, y la capacidad para negociar. El último apartado explica la metodología empleada por Eurofound para evaluar la representatividad desde 1996 y plantea la pregunta de si este enfoque debería refinarse o modificarse tras 10 años de aplicación.
