EU Sources - Industrial relations and convergence in Europe - May 31, 2018

 The International Labour Organisation (ILO) presented and overview of the report ‘What effects of industrial relations on convergence in Europe’ earlier this month at a conference in Paris. The study highlights four ways in which industrial relations seem to have contributed to national convergence stories: 1. National social dialogue is found to have contributed to convergence 2. Collective agreements can also be an engine of convergence 3. Industrial relations are found to play a role in mitigating the effects of a crisis 4. Industrial relations increasingly help in tackling new issues and challenges that are relevant for convergence. Besides the main report ‘Convergence in the EU: what role for industrial relations?’ several presentations on specific countries are provided.
