This study provides information designed to aid the functioning of sectoral social dialogue in the construction sector. The study is divided into three parts: a summary of the sector’s economic background; an analysis of the social partner organisations in all EU Member States (apart from Croatia), including membership, role in collective bargaining, social dialogue and public policy, and national and European affiliations; and an overview of the relevant European organisations, in particular their membership composition and capacity to negotiate. The aim of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. The impetus for these studies comes from the European Commission’s aim to recognise the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

    Representativeness of the European social partner organisations: Construction sector

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    This study aims to provide the necessary information to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the construction sector in the EU27 – covering all EU Member States except for Croatia (not a Member State when the study was initiated). The aim of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies, carried out at the request of the European Commission, is to identify the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). The study thus identifies the relevant national social partner organisations in the construction sector by means of both a top-down approach (listing the members of the relevant European associations) and a bottom-up approach through Eurofound’s Network of European Correspondents.
