This study provides information designed to aid sectoral social dialogue in the textile and clothing sector. The study is divided into three parts: a summary of the sector’s economic background; an analysis of the social partner organisations in all the EU Member States, including their membership, role in collective bargaining, social dialogue and public policy, and national and European affiliations; and an analysis of relevant European organisations, particularly their membership composition and capacity to negotiate. The aim of Eurofound's studies on representativeness is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. The impetus for these studies comes from the European Commission’s desire to recognise the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

    Representativeness of the European social partner organisations: Textiles and clothing sector

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
     

    This study aims to provide the necessary information to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the textiles and clothing sector. The series of representativeness studies, carried out at the request of the European Commission, sets out to identify the representative social partner associations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). The study thus identifies the relevant national social partner organisations in the textiles and clothing sector via a top-down approach (listing the members of the European affiliations) and a bottom-up approach via Eurofound's network of national correspondents.
