This report maps, analyses and discusses key dimensions and indicators for a comparative framework of industrial relations. It then identifies and assesses existing data sources that can be used to measure the different dimensions of the comparative framework. Lastly, it identifies possible data gaps that may be filled through Eurofound’s future work in the 2017 project, ‘Application of the key dimensions of industrial relations’. The findings highlight the relevance of the key dimensions to European governments and social partners. The conceptual framework and the key dimensions proposed may serve as a monitoring instrument to assess the developments in principles, values and their operational application in the industrial relations systems in the EU.

    Mapping key dimensions of industrial relations in Europe

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Industrial relations systems involve a complex web of rules, its political, economic, labour and social inputs interacting with institutions and practices to generate outcomes. These outcomes can be wage-setting agreements, employment relationships, as well as other intangible assets, such as trust, mutual recognition, cooperation schemes, social and industrial peace. Embedded as they are in national – and, increasingly, transnational political, economic and social environments, industrial relations systems have undergone important changes in the last decades of the past century. The aim of this research is to monitor and analyse to what extent these changes and developments have affected both the understanding and the dynamics of these systems.
