Abstract

Transnational Framework Agreements are a new industrial relations instrument that encourages the recognition of social partnership across national borders and could lead to new forms of social regulation at global level. The rationale for taking the initiative to negotiate such agreements can be traced back to the effects of the globalisation of production structures and human resource strategies. This report explores the recent phenomenon of transnational agreements, including both international agreements which have a global scope of application, and European agreements which have a more regional scope. An executive summary is available.

    The increasing number of transnational framework agreements (TFAs) signed in recent years both, at global and European levels, has begun to attract the attention of the ILO, the European Commission and research experts. A Eurofound report on the subject provides an analytical presentation of the content of TFAs, examines the strategies of the employer and union organisations involved in signing these agreements and assesses the contribution of TFAs to the internationalisation of industrial relations. This leaflet summarises the main results of the research. A report is available.
