EU sources -Report finds collective bargaining more decentralised and flexible -November 05, 2015

A report released by Eurofound evaluates changes in collective bargaining throughout Europe. The authors find a universal trend towards decentralisation and flexibilisation. Collective agreements are negotiated more often on the lower, company level and more often give companies options to deviate from the agreement. The authors note that this trend occurs in all European countries, but has been developing at a much faster pace in Greece, Portugal, Romania and Spain. Changes in the Nordic countries and North Western Europe have been slower and executed in a more coordinated way.
