On 10 February 2012, Spain’s new government, led by the Popular Party, enacted labour legislation reforms that modified collective bargaining rules (*ES1202021I* ). The new law decentralised collective bargaining to a greater degree than the previous reforms brought in by the Socialist Party in 2011 (*ES1107011I* ).  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/undefined-industrial-relations/unions-oppose-new-law-sanctioning-greater-flexibility  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/undefined/government-to-reform-collective-bargaining-rules
