EU Sources -ETUI report helps strengthen collective bargaining in a context of outsourcing -July 17, 2015

The European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) has published a report analysing employment relations in firms who contract out part of their value chain, looking at out/insourcing and off/in shoring. The report studies workers’ participation in outsourcing decisions as well as its impact on working conditions and employment relations in the parent company. The researchers found both sector level collective bargaining institutions and supportive national institutions are essential to upholding decent working conditions. The report also recommends more policy measures aimed at addressing chain liability provisions.
