epsucob@NEWS - collective bargaining newsletter
epsucob@NEWS is EPSU’s newsletter covering developments in collective bargaining and pay and conditions in the public services across Europe.
As well as general editions, EPSU also produces some special issues focusing on key topics such as minimum wages, trade union rights, pensions and economic governance. Further special issues are planned for the future.
Please send us short updates on collective bargaining in your country so that we can improve the coverage of the newsletter. You can send them to rpond epsu.org.
