1. Challenges of European Employment Relations - Linda Dickens
Has European economic and market integration curtailed the autonomy of national industrial relations actors and institutions? Or has it reinforced their roles in securing much-needed economic adjustment? This book offers a comparative perspective on these questions, drawing on empirical research on changing conditions within and beyond the EU.
The book builds on papers presented at the 8th European Regional Congress of the International Industrial Relations Association, held in the UK in September 2007.
With detailed attention to such pervasive factors as the consequences of EU enlargement, the shift from manufacturing to services, changes in the gender composition and demographic profile of the labour force, and the growing influence of multinational companies, the authors address such issues as the following:
• response of national employment regulatory traditions to globalization, privatization, outsourcing and budgetary pressures
