The representativeness of social partners provides legitimacy for their various roles in industrial relations through the social dialogue, the collective bargaining and the involvement in government policymaking or implementation.
The report compares the different ways in which the representativeness of social partners is defined at national, European and international levels across the 28 Member States and Norway.
It also analyses the concept of representativeness at national level by reviewing key elements such as electoral success, organisational strength in terms of membership, and the capacity to negotiate.
