Industrial relations in EU Member States 2000–2004
This report presents a comparison of national industrial relations systems in the EU25, exploring the differences between individual systems and their effects on the economy. The report is based on the more detailed findings of a research project entitled ‘Quality of industrial relations: Comparative industrial relations country profiles in the EU Member States’, commissioned by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions. The report summarises findings from the country profiles of the industrial relations features observed among each of the 25 EU Member States, which were compiled as part of the aforementioned project. The data include facts and figures, links to sources, along with an overview of the main industrial relations features, actors, processes and outcomes. The aim of the study is to provide a more comprehensive understanding, across national frontiers, of the various industrial relations systems across Europe.
