This study provides information aimed at encouraging sectoral social dialogue in the chemical sector. The study is divided into three parts: a summary of the sector’s economic and employment background; an analysis of the social partner organisations in all EU Member States, with emphasis on their membership, their role in collective bargaining, social dialogue and public policy and their national and European affiliations; and finally an analysis of the relevant European organisations, particularly their membership composition and their capacity to negotiate. The aim of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies 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 arises from the goal of the European Commission 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: Chemical sector - Executive summary

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    This study aims to provide the necessary information to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the chemical sector. The goal of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. Hence, the study identifies the relevant national social partner organisations in the chemical sector via a top-down approach (listing the members of the European affiliations) and a bottom-up approach through Eurofound’s network of European correspondents.
