[full-text, 16 pages]


Author: Aumayr, Christine


Summary: This report presents some descriptive findings of Eurofound's European Company Survey (ECS) 2009 on the structure of industrial relations and social dialogue as well as working time patterns in the commerce sector in Europe. Collective bargaining coverage and the degree of employee representation in the commerce sector is generally low compared with cross-sectoral national averages, but the deviation from the respective country average is much higher in countries with a low general coverage rate. Trade union membership is also lower in the commerce sector.
