Principales conclusions

  • National-level bipartite social dialogue and collective bargaining lie at the heart of national industrial relations systems and should be underpinned by an appropriately supportive legal framework while respecting the principle of subsidiarity and the autonomy of the social partners.

  • National-level bipartite social dialogue and collective bargaining lie at the heart of national industrial relations systems and should be underpinned by an appropriately supportive legal framework while respecting the principle of subsidiarity and the autonomy of the social partners.
  • Structural gaps at national level identified in the research include lack of representativeness and mandate to negotiate, limited tripartism, sectoral collective bargaining and low collective bargaining coverage, lack of social partners’ autonomy and lack of trust between the social partners and governments.
  • Elements that would foster a more effective social dialogue at national level include legislative reforms to promote social dialogue and collective bargaining, a more supportive role by the state, increase in membership, capacity and mandate to negotiate, more human and financial resources.
  • Developing the skills and expertise of the two sides of industry in relation to specific skills (such as industrial relations, negotiation, research and analysis, policymaking, advocacy, and soft and digital skills) should be supported.
  • Social partners should be assisted in their efforts to increase their membership representativeness and capacity to negotiate and implement agreements.

    Renforcement des capacités pour un dialogue social efficace dans l’Union européenne

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    L’objectif de ce rapport est d’apporter des éléments de réflexion sur la manière dont Eurofound peut contribuer à soutenir le renforcement des capacités des partenaires sociaux pour un dialogue social efficace. Le rapport comprend un examen réalisé par Eurofound visant à identifier les besoins en matière de renforcement des capacités et les initiatives des partenaires sociaux en ce qui concerne les cadres nationaux de la négociation collective autonome, la participation au dialogue social européen et au Semestre européen, et le développement du nombre de membres et des services offerts aux membres. Il comprend également les résultats des consultations des parties prenantes et de deux séminaires d’échange organisés en 2019, ainsi qu’une série d’orientations politiques pour approfondir la réflexion.

Il est possible que des recherches effectuées avant le retrait du Royaume-Uni de l’Union européenne le 31 janvier 2020 et publiées après cette date incluent des données relatives aux 28 États membres de l’UE. À compter de cette date, les recherches ne porteront, sauf indication contraire, que sur les 27 États membres de l’UE (UE-28 moins le Royaume-Uni)

Ce rapport présente les résultats des recherches menées avant l’apparition de la COVID-19 en Europe en février 2020. C’est pourquoi les résultats ne tiennent pas compte de l’épidémie.
