EU sources -Social dialogue weak in the face of major budget cuts -November 26, 2012

The European Work and Employment Research Centre published a comparative report on public sector pay and procurement during the crisis. Studying developments in France, Germany, Hungary, Sweden and the UK, the EWERC concludes that social dialogue arrangements in the public sector that existed in the good times were often circumvented in the last years when cut backs were made. The authors of the report call special attention to flawed outsourcing and public tendering procedures that fail to uphold working conditions and pay levels.
