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.

    Konverġenzi u diverġenzi fil-kundizzjonijiet tax-xogħol fl-Ewropa: 1990–2005 - Sommarju Eżekuttiv

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Fl-2005, il-Fondazzjoni Ewropea għat-Titjib tal-Kundizzjonijiet tal-Għajxien u tax-Xogħol (Eurofound) bdiet ir-raba’ sensiela tal-Istħarriġ tagħha dwar il-Kundizzjonijiet tax-Xogħol fl-Ewropa (EWCS), li beda fl-1990. Matul dan il-perijodu ta’ 15-il sena, l-Unjoni Ewropea għaddiet minn bidliet sinifikanti f’diversi livelli. Dan ir-rapport għandu l-għan ewlieni li jinvestiga żewġ kwistjonijiet relatati mar-riċerka. L-ewwel, ifittex li josserva permezz tad-diversi sensiliet tal-EWCS, l-eżistenza ta’ movimenti relattivi ta’ konverġenza jew diverġenza maż-żmien li jikkonċernaw il-kwalità tal-ħajja tax-xogħol. It-tieni, jesplora jekk movimenti bħal dawn humiex viżibbli bejn il-pajjiżi Ewropej matul dan il-perijodu.
