Sommario

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.

    Convergenza e divergenza delle condizioni di lavoro in Europa: 1990-2005 - Sintesi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Nel 2005, la Fondazione europea per il miglioramento delle condizioni di vita e di lavoro (Eurofound) ha condotto il quarto ciclo dell’Indagine europea sulle condizioni di lavoro, lanciata nel 1990. Durante questi ultimi 15 anni, nell’Unione europea si sono verificati cambiamenti significativi a vari livelli. Scopo precipuo della presente relazione è investigare due ambiti di ricerca. In primo luogo, si propone di osservare, attraverso i vari cicli dell’indagine, l’esistenza di variazioni nel tempo, in termini di convergenza o di divergenza, riguardanti la qualità della vita lavorativa. In secondo luogo, esamina se variazioni analoghe siano osservabili tra i diversi paesi europei durante il periodo considerato.
