EU sources -Working and living conditions in perspective -May 26, 2015

Yearbook 2014 titled 'Living and working in Europe' summarises employment issues, workplace practices, sustainability and quality of life.

Eurofound, the Dublin based European agency, celebrates its 40th anniversary. The Yearbook 2014 titled Living and working in Europe summarises a lot of the work of the agency in the field of employment issues, workplace practices, sustainability and quality of life. The section on collective bargaining notes that, though decentralisation of collective bargaining has accelerated in the wake of the crisis, 60% of employees in private sector establishments with 10 employees or more are still covered by a collective wage agreement made at company, regional, sectoral or occupational level (or any combination of these levels where multiple interlinked agreements might be in place). The figure rises to 70% when national cross-sector agreements (such as in Italy, Finland or Spain) are considered.
