EU sources -Public sector figures prominently in overview of industrial action -November 18, 2015

Eurofound produced an overview of industrial actions in 2014. Overall, strike actions across the EU dropped in 2014 following a crisis-related peak in 2010. However, evidence delivered by correspondents suggests that the more highly unionised public sector has been a focus of industrial action recently. In general, strikes have been triggered by pay freezes and cuts, as well as by other unpopular effects of fiscal tightening such as lay-offs or changed working conditions. It remains to be seen what impact the recently observed return to pay restoration and collective bargaining will exert on public sector labour relations in the times ahead.
