Europe Europe
The 2013 edition of the ETUI's Benchmarking Working Europe provides an comprehensive overview of the effects of austerity measures across Europe. Its third chapter focuses on collective bargaining and is a short and clear explanation and analysis of process and impact of the intervention of the European institutions and the IMF in collective bargaining. The report looks at wage developments before and after the crisis highlighting the trend towards declining real wages, restrictive minimum wage policy, falling wage shares and increasing income inequality.
