This study provides information designed to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the footwear industry. The aim of Eurofound’s series of studies on representativeness is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. Top-down and bottom-up analyses of the footwear sector in the EU identified the IndustriAll European Trade Union (IndustriAll Europe) (representing employees) and the European Confederation of the Footwear Industry (CEC) (representing employers) as the most important European-level social partner organisations in the sector.
