Trade Unions and Employers in the Single Europe


This report falls into two sections: the first outlines the background to and basic content of the EC's new social agenda; the second briefly reviews general government, employer and trade union responses to the EC's initiatives, and then examines in detail the findings of illustrative fieldwork undertaken in the UK among managers, personnel specialists and trade union officials in some 26 organisations.
