Around one third (34%) of workplaces with 10 or more employees have a trade union or works council body in place. Considerable variation exists between countries: the rate is above 55% in Denmark, Sweden and Finland but below 20% in countries such as Turkey, Greece and Portugal. Substantial variations also exist depending on industry sector and workplace size. Many of these characteristics are related to the presence or absence of a trade union or works council. Workplace representation is more prevalent in countries where national or sectoral bargaining dominates. It is also higher in countries with more extensive levels of legislative support for workplace representation.

    Id-djalogu soċjali fuq il-post tax-xogħol fl-Ewropa: Analiżi tal-Istħarriġ tal-Kumpanija Ewropea tal-2009 - Sommarju eżekuttiv

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Kif jaħdem id-djalogu soċjali fil-prattika, x’forom ta’ rappreżentazzjoni jeżistu u kemm jaħdmu tajjeb? L-Istħarriġ tal-Kumpaniji Ewropej tal-Eurofound (ECS) tal-2009 jipprovdi dejta rikka minn 30 pajjiż sabiex jixtarr dawn il-mistoqsijiet. Dan ir-rapport jieħu l-ECS u s-sorsi l-oħrajn tad-dejta u jħares lejn fatturi li jinfluwenzaw id-direzzjoni li d-djalogu soċjali jieħu f’kumpanija, b’mod partikolari rigward il-kunsilli tax-xogħol u t-trejdjunjins; id-daqs tal-kumpanija, l-età tal-kumpanija, in-natura tal-prodott jew is-servizz ipprovdut, l-għażliet tal-impjegatur u l-kompożizzjoni tal-forza tax-xogħol kollha huma fatturi relevanti. Anki l-qafas usa’ jħalli impatt, pereżempju kemm il-gvernijiet nazzjonali jintervjenu fid-djalogu soċjali u f’liema livell iseħħu n-negozjati.
