Abstract

Industrial relations have been studied at a national level for more than 100 years. This study, however, shows for the first time that industrial relations vary more by sector than by country. The authors also argue that this sector-focused research can provide a far more detailed picture of European industrial relations than purely national definitions allow. An executive summary is available.

    This study, focusing on industrial relations in nine sectors across the 27 EU Member States, aims to highlight the potential for comparing sectoral industrial relations, and to show that it tends to develop similar characteristics across national borders. It pinpoints factors that may explain different degrees of international convergence in different sectors, and therefore the potential for EU-level coordination in each sector.
