EU sources -Social partners and gender equality -November 27, 2014

The Eurofound report Social partners and gender equality in Europe assesses the role of the social partners in advancing gender equality in Europe.

The Eurofound report Social partners and gender equality in Europe assesses the role of the social partners in advancing gender equality in Europe. It explores the actions taken within the different national frameworks of industrial relations and against the ranking of the Member States on the Gender Equality Index. While the social partners can influence legislation through tripartite consultation, they primarily play a role in collective bargaining at national, sectoral and company level – and therefore can influence not only the working conditions of men and women, but also the ability to reconcile work and family life.
