ECS 2009 - Workplace social dialogue

Workplace social dialogue

  • Almost four out of ten companies (37%) in the survey reported an institutional form of employee representation, which covers more than 60% of the employees
  • More than two out of three workers in the EU are covered by a collective pay agreement: in the total economy, the figure is 69%, while it stands at 67% in the private sector alone
  • Employee representatives in Europe seem to be generally satisfied that a rather good cooperative culture of interaction exists between them and the management of establishments
  • European management is, in general, rather positive about the effect of social dialogue and employee representation at the workplace
  • Some 80% of the interviewed representatives claim that the employees support their work.
