EU sources -Report: EU economic governance has put pressure on collective bargaining -December 03, 2014

Report: EU economic governance during the crisis has negatively affected collective bargaining, put downward pressure on wages agreed in collective agreements, as well as negatively affected the collective bargaining process.

A report by Foundation 1º de Mayo (Coordinator, Spain); Institute For Social And Trade Union Research (Bulgaria); Institute of Social and Economic Researches (France); Association Bruno Trentin (Italy); and Labour Institute of Greek General Confederation of Labour (Greece) states that EU economic governance during the crisis has negatively affected collective bargaining. The authors argue that in the member states that are dealing with large deficits, EU economic governance has put downward pressure on wages agreed in collective agreements, as well as negatively affected the collective bargaining process.
