This study aims to provide the necessary information to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the tanning and leather sector in the EU. The goal of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies, carried out at the request of the European Commission, is to identify the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). Hence, this study identifies the relevant national social partner organisations in the tanning and leather industry by means of both a top-down approach (listing the members of the relevant European associations) and a bottom-up approach through Eurofound’s Network of European Correspondents. Cyprus, Ireland, Luxembourg and Malta are excluded from the scope of this study since virtually no business activities exist within the sector. Read more in the report - see Related content.
