Don't forget that EPSU is carrying out its annual survey of pay and conditions in the public services. Information from the survey will be included in an annual report on collective bargaining and social dialogue that will be presented to the Collective Bargaining conference in Brussels in December. The report has to be finished in time for translation and so responses to the survey are needed by the end of September. All contacts in EPSU's epsucob@ collective bargaining network should have received a copy of the questionnaire. It is available in English, French, German, Spanish and Swedish. If you have not received a copy contact: email@example.com The ETUC is also carrying out its annual survey of collective bargaining developments across all sectors. This year, at EPSU's suggestion, the survey includes questions on low pay and minimum wages. The ETUC questionnaire is sent to union centres and so if you are in touch with people who deal with collective bargaining in your national centre please encourage them to complete and return the ETUC questionnaire.
