  • Unions join Euro-demonstration in Wrocław

    The so-called ‘Euro-demonstration’, organised by The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC [1]) took place on 17 September in Wrocław. It coincided with an informal meeting of The Economic and Financial Affairs Council (ECOFIN [2]) also held in the city and attended by EU leaders, representatives of non-member states and, unusually for this kind of meeting, US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. The main topic of discussion was the debt crisis, mounting concern over Greek debt, and the actions needed to be taken by the EU. One important result was a compromise on several previously unresolved issues concerning the reform of economic governance. The agreement (28Kb MS Word doc) [3], consisting of a legislative package of five regulations and one directive, strengthens the Stability and Growth Pact: [1] http://www.etuc.org/ [2] http://www.consilium.europa.eu/policies/council-configurations/economic-and-financial-affairs.aspx?lang=en [3] http://www.consilium.europa.eu/uedocs/cms_data/docs/pressdata/en/ecofin/124640.pdf
  • Industrial relations and working conditions developments in Europe 2010

    With a particular focus on the crisis and responses to it, this annual review highlights developments in working conditions and industrial relations in the EU Member States and Norway in 2010, both at national and EU level. At national level, the report examines key issues covered by collective bargaining (pay and working time) and looks at developments in social partner activity and industrial action. It also looks at company restructuring, the impact of the crisis and approaches to pension reform in light of demographic change. At European level, it reviews the year’s main events and trends in employment legislation and policy (in areas like paternity/maternity leave and working time), as well as in the European social dialogue at cross-sectoral, sectoral and company levels. The final chapter focuses on training initiatives provided or supported by enterprises for their employees during the recession.
  • Time-off provisions for employee representatives in Europe - Background paper

    Most countries give employee representatives the opportunity to fulfil their tasks. Time off is generally provided, although the number of hours varies from one country to another. This report combines an overview on the time-off provided in the legal frameworks of the different EU Member States with an analysis of what this means in practice for the employee representatives. Eurofound collected data on time off for employee representatives in its European Company Survey (ECS) in 2009.
