Abstract:

The project uncovers the role of industrial relations in addressing the changing labour market and, in particular, the growth of precarious work. The analysis focuses on the initiatives, responses, and best practices that trade unions and employers’ associations developed in addressing precarious work in the post- 2008 period. The report uses a qualitative and comparative approach to study the dimensions of precarious employment, including low pay, irregular working hours, job security and representation of workers’ rights. The two-dimensional approach to precarious employment allows mapping sectoral differences in in the following sectors: construction, healthcare, metal/automotive, retail and temporary agency work (TAW).
