EU sources -Worsening conditions in the European public sector -April 24, 2013

In a book published by the ILO the impact of the austerity measures on the public sector is analysed. The immediate pressure to make savings and reduce public spending has led most governments to make cuts to expenditure, jobs and wages – often hastily. The neglect of social dialogue in the reform process and the abolition of a number of provisions that encouraged collective bargaining, have contributed to worsening working conditions in the public sector. Previously known as a ‘model employer’, public sector practices are now converging with those in the private sector.
