EU Sources - OECD job strategy report recognises importance of collective bargaining - December 31, 2018

OECD published a new job strategy report, the first one in 12 years. According to the report that is called “Good Jobs for All in a Changing World of Work” collective bargaining is the best way to deliver better quality work.
