EU sources -Wage setting under pressure -February 03, 2013

In a meeting of the European Employment Committee the European and national-level social partners expressed serious worries and felt that the autonomy of the national level should be preserved. According to the ETUC it is unacceptable that reforms restricting collective bargaining coverage and the freedom of trade unions to set wages are deemed to be ‘employment friendly’ by EU institutions. A Eurofound background paper delivered the participants a comparative overview of the levels of collective wage setting and how they are set throughout Europe. It also reported on reforms, changes or debates linked to these processes between the different actors at both the Member State and the European level in 2011 and 2012.
