Evaluating the European sectoral social dialogue and the impact of austerity on collective bargaining in the public services

The OSE is starting a new research project for the European Federation of Public Services Union (EPSU). The aim of this contract is to analyse the questionnaire responses provided by EPSU afiliates, and to undertake interviews as part of an in-depth evaluation of the sectoral social dialogue in the public services (incl. central and local administrations, hospitals, gas and electricity). Ramón Peña-Casas presented preliminary results at EPSU’s Social Dialogue and Collective Bargaining conference on 13 & 14 December 2012.

OSE researchers involved in the project: Ramón Peña-Casas and Dalila Ghailani.
