Working conditions in the acceding and candidate countries (summary)
The Foundation carried out its Third European Working Conditions Survey in the 15 Member States of the European Union (EU) in 2000. In 2001, the survey was extended to cover the 12 acceding and candidate countries and the following year the survey included Turkey. The aim was to provide an overview for EU policymakers as they set about shaping the contours of the new European Union. This document summarises some of the main findings in the survey that was carried out in the 12 acceding and candidate countries in 2001. A report (EF0306) and an information sheet (EF0375) on this topic are also available.
