This study provides information designed to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the shipbuilding sector. 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. Top-down and bottom-up analyses of shipbuilding sector in 26 EU Member States covered in the study show that industriAll Europe, on the employees’ side, and the European Ships and Maritime Equipment Association (SEA Europe), on the employers’ side, are the most important European-level social partner organisations in the shipbuilding sector. (No relevant economic activities are reported in this sector in Ireland and Luxembourg.)
