EIRObserver (Issue 3/01)
EIRObserver is the bi-monthly bulletin of the European Industrial Relations Observatory. It contains an edited selection of features and news items, based on some of the reports supplied for the EIROnline database over each two-month period. On top of this, EIRO also conducts comparative research on specific themes. The comparative supplement examines the issue of variable pay in the 15 EU Member States, plus Norway. It looks at the incidence and development of different systems, the extent to which variable pay is covered by collective bargaining and the attitudes of the social partners, the government and the public, concluding with an analysis of the impact of variable pay on industrial relations.
