Abstract

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.

    Cóineasú agus dibhéirsiú de dhálaí oibre san Eoraip: 1990–2005 - Achoimre feidhmiúcháin

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Chuaigh An Foras Eorpach chun Dálaí Maireachtála agus Oibre a Fheabhsú (Eurofound) i mbun an cheathrú babhta dá Shuirbhé ar Dhálaí Oibre Eorpacha (EWCS), a gcuireadh tús leis i 1990, in 2005. Le linn na tréimhse 15 bliana, rinneadh athruithe suntasacha ar an Aontas Eorpach ag leibhéil éagsúla. Go príomhúil, leis na tuarascáil seo, dírítear ar iniúchadh a dhéanamh ar dhá cheist taighde. Ar an gcéad dul síos, déantar iarracht gluaiseachtaí coibhneasta cóineasaithe nó dibhéirsithe le himeacht aimsire a bhaineann le cáilíocht an tsaoil oibre a fheiceáil thar bhabhtaí éagsúla an EWCS. Ar an dara dul síos, fiosraítear an bhfuil gluaiseachtaí comhchosúla le feiceáil idir tíortha Eorpacha i rith na tréimhse.
