    The preliminary accord on continuing the nationwide collective agreement for
    the information and communications technologies (ICT) sector is the second
    renewal of an important nationwide agreement by all bargaining parties after
    the agreement of 22 January 2009 on the reform of the Italian collective
    bargaining system (*IT0902059I* [1]). The agreement in the ICT sector covers
    160,000 workers of telecommunications companies, including companies such as
    Telecom, Vodafone, Wind, Fastweb and H3G. It was reached jointly on 23
    October 2009 by the three trade unions in the sector and the Association of
    Italian Telecommunications Companies (Assotelecomunicazioni, Asstel [2]) at
    the headquarters of the Confederation of Italian Industry (Confederazione
    Generale dell’Industria Italiana, Confindustria [3]) in Rome. Signatories
    on the trade union side included the Communication Workers’ Union
    (Sindacato Lavoratori Comunicazione, Slc-Cgil [4]) affiliated to the General
    Confederation of Italian Workers (Confederazione Generale Italiana del
    Lavoro, Cgil [5]), the Federation of Entertainment, Information and
    Telecommunications Workers (Federazione Informazione Spettacolo e
    Telecomunicazioni, Fistel-Cisl [6]) affiliated to the Italian Confederation
    of Workers’ Trade Unions (Confederazione Italiana Sindacati Lavoratori,
    Cisl [7]), and the Italian Communications Workers’ Union (Unione Italiana
    Lavoratori della Comunicazione, Uilcom-Uil [8]) affiliated to the Union of
    Italian Workers (Unione Italiana del Lavoro, Uil [9]).

    At present, the Polish police force employs 100,000 people. The modernisation
    and reform of the police force, which occurred in the first weeks of 2007,
    included plans to bring the police force technologically up to date and aimed
    to improve the situation of police officers by strengthening the motivational
    system of remuneration. In effect, throughout 2008, the wages of police
    officers increased by a small percentage. The following year, however,
    brought about a significant decline in terms of pay within this occupational
    group. In fact, the situation deteriorated such that the police trade unions
    organised a protest on 1 December 2009 engaging around 3,000 police officers,
    supported by their fellow activists of the European Confederation of Police
    (EuroCOP [1]).

    In 2009, the Women’s Issues Information Centre (Moterų informacijos
    centras, MIC [1]), on request of the Ministry of Social Security and Labour
    of the Republic of Lithuania (Socialinės apsaugos ir darbo ministerija, SADM
    [2]), carried out a survey with the aim of assessing changes in the situation
    of women and men in various areas of life, including labour market
    participation. In addition, the survey examined society’s attitudes towards
    working women and men, and the findings were compared with data of similar
    surveys conducted in 1994 and 2000.
