Keskeiset havainnot

  • National social dialogue frameworks can be categorised into three groups in their practices involving social partners in policymaking: countries with well-established social dialogue structures working efficiently; countries where social dialogue institutions exist and work but social partners are not fully satisfied with their involvement in policymaking; and countries where social partners do not feel like they are meaningfully involved in policymaking.

  • National social dialogue frameworks can be categorised into three groups in their practices involving social partners in policymaking: countries with well-established social dialogue structures working efficiently; countries where social dialogue institutions exist and work but social partners are not fully satisfied with their involvement in policymaking; and countries where social partners do not feel like they are meaningfully involved in policymaking.
  • In 2019, social partners in most countries were consulted in policymaking to some extent. Consultations included reforms and policy initiatives within both the country-specific recommendations (CSRs) and the national agenda.
  • Most social partners were also involved in the elaboration of the National Reform Programmes (NRPs) in 2019. However, social partners, notably in Greece, Italy and Hungary, stressed that they were not involved at all or were critical of the quality of involvement.
  • Social partner involvement usually comprised formal consultation on an institutional basis or via bilateral contacts.
  • Most social partners considered the setting used for their involvement appropriate; however, one of the outstanding issues for some social partners is the lack of time allowed for consultation and exchange in the elaboration of the NRP.

This report investigates the quality of the national social partners’ involvement in designing and implementing reforms and policies in the context of the European Semester 2018–2019 and in the elaboration of the National Reform Programmes. As previously reported by Eurofound, there is a positive correlation between the strength of the national social dialogue and the involvement of the social partners in policymaking. A positive correlation is also visible between a well-functioning national social dialogue and the involvement of the social partners in the European Semester. In some cases, both processes are almost fully aligned as part of a continuum in social policy practice. Based on examples of reforms and policy initiatives discussed and implemented since 2018, the picture that emerges is one of stable and relatively effective performance in most countries. Nevertheless, social partners in several countries remain dissatisfied that their views are not truly influential in policymaking, although this perception – of being heard, but not listened to – varies across countries and stakeholders.

    Kansallisten työmarkkinaosapuolten rooli päätöksenteossa − 2019

    Tekijä(t): 
    Eurofound

    Tässä raportissa selvitetään, miten kansalliset työmarkkinaosapuolet osallistuivat uudistusten ja toimintalinjojen suunnitteluun ja toteuttamiseen talouspolitiikan EU-ohjausjaksolla 2018−2019 sekä kansallisten uudistusohjelmien laatimiseen.

    Kuten Eurofound aiemmin kertoi, kansallisen työmarkkinavuoropuhelun vahvuus korreloi myönteisesti työmarkkinaosapuolten päätöksentekoon osallistumisen kanssa. Myös työmarkkinaosapuolten toimivan kansallisen vuoropuhelun ja työmarkkinaosapuolten EU-ohjausjaksoon osallistumisen välillä on selkeä myönteinen korrelaatio. Joissakin tapauksissa molemmat prosessit on yhtenäistetty lähes kokonaan sosiaalipolitiikan käytäntöjen perusteella.

    Tutkimuksessa käsiteltyjä ja vuodesta 2018 lähtien toteutettuja uudistuksia ja poliittisia aloitteita koskevista esimerkeistä saa kuvan, että toiminta on vakaata ja melko tehokasta useimmissa maissa. Useiden maiden työmarkkinaosapuolet ovat kuitenkin edelleen tyytymättömiä siihen, että niiden näkemyksillä ei ole tosiasiallista vaikutusta päätöksenteossa. Tosin tämä käsitys siitä, että näkemyksiä kuunnellaan mutta niitä ei oteta huomioon, vaihtelee maittain ja sidosryhmittäin.

Tutkimuksiin, jotka on tehty ennen Yhdistyneen kuningaskunnan eroa Euroopan unionista 31. tammikuuta 2020 ja jotka julkaistaan tämän ajankohdan jälkeen, voi sisältyä tietoa, joka koskee EU:n 28 jäsenvaltiota. Tämän ajankohdan jälkeen tutkimuksissa otetaan huomioon vain EU:n 27 jäsenvaltiota (ilman Yhdistynyttä kuningaskuntaa), ellei toisin mainita.

Tässä raportissa esitetään tulokset tutkimuksesta, joka tehtiin ennen covid-19-epidemian puhkeamista Euroopassa helmikuussa 2020. Siksi tuloksissa ei oteta huomioon epidemian vaikutuksia.
