Representativeness of the European social partner organisations: Local and regional government sector [9 March 2015]




[full-text, 72 pages]

This study provides information designed to support sectoral social dialogue in the local and regional government sector. The study is divided into three parts: a summary of the sector’s background, with a special focus on industrial relations; an analysis of the social partner organisations in all the EU Member States, including their membership, role in collective bargaining, social dialogue and public policy, and national and European affiliations; and an analysis of relevant European organisations, particularly their membership composition and capacity to negotiate. The aim of the studies on representativeness by Eurofound’s Network of European correspondents (NEC) is to identify the relevant national social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors and their relationships with EU-level associations of labour and business. The impetus for these studies comes from the European Commission’s desire to recognise the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).
