This study aims to provide the necessary information for encouraging sectoral social dialogue in the insurance sector. It identifies the relevant national organisations on both sides of industry and analyses the sector’s relevant European organisations. The study first explores the economic background of the sector and goes on to outline the social partner organisations in all the EU Member States (with the exception of Latvia), focussing on membership, role in collective bargaining and public policy, and national and European affiliations. The study concludes with an analysis of the relevant European organisations, particularly their membership composition and their capacity to negotiate. The series of representativeness studies aims to identify relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in selected sectors. They derive from the European Commission’s desire to recognise the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). Hence, this study is designed to provide the basic information required to assist sectoral social dialogue.
