Representativeness of the European social partner organisations: Sea fisheries [9 March 2012]



[full-text, 44 pages]

This study aims to provide the necessary information for reviewing social dialogue in the sea fisheries sector. The report identifies the national organisations on both sides of industry, and analyses the sector’s European organisations. Following a brief overview of the sector’s economic background, the study describes the social partner organisations in all of the EU Member States (with the exception of Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Luxembourg, and Slovakia) and then goes on to look at the relevant European organisations, focusing in particular on membership levels and capacity to negotiate. The impetus for these EIRO series of studies on representativeness arises from the European Commission’s goal to recognise the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). In the sea fisheries sector, a joint committee was established in 1974 and the sea fisheries sectoral social dialogue committee was set up in 1999.

The study was compiled on the basis of individual national reports submitted by the EIRO correspondents. The text of each of these national reports is available below. The national reports were drawn up in response to a questionnaire and should be read in conjunction with it.
