Abstract

Previous Eurofound research has identified four key dimensions of industrial relations: industrial democracy, industrial competitiveness, social justice, and quality of work and employment. This report seeks to build a set of indicators to measure country performance in industrial relations in terms of these four dimensions and to develop a typology of industrial relations systems, enabling a cross-country analysis of trends. The report focuses particularly on industrial democracy, seen in this context as the core dimension of industrial relations and the most desirable model of work and employment governance. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    The 2016 study Mapping key dimensions of industrial relations defined industrial relations as ‘the collective and individual governance of work and employment’. It developed a conceptual framework for mapping industrial relations, identifying four key dimensions: industrial democracy, industrial competitiveness, social justice, and quality of work and employment. A follow-up study was conducted to apply the conceptual framework at national level. The study produced a dashboard of 45 indicators, providing a tool to analyse national industrial relations systems across the EU. This analysis showed that a dashboard measuring the complex reality of industrial relations across EU Member States is a valuable tool for comparative research and for policymakers, social partners and stakeholders at EU and national level.
