Résumé

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.

    Convergence et divergence des conditions de travail en Europe: 1990–2005 - Note de synthèse

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    En 2005, la Fondation européenne pour l’amélioration des conditions de vie et de travail (Eurofound) a mené la quatrième enquête européenne sur les conditions de travail, lancée pour la première fois en 1990. Pendant cette période de 15 ans, l’Union européenne a connu des changements significatifs à divers niveaux. L’objectif premier de ce rapport est d’étudier deux questions de recherche. En premier lieu, il a pour objectif d’observer, à travers les différentes enquêtes européennes sur les conditions de travail, l’existence de mouvements relatifs de convergence ou de divergence, au cours du temps, concernant la qualité de la vie professionnelle. En second lieu, il recherche l’existence de mouvements semblables parmi les pays européens au cours de cette période.
