2.3 Methodological note

The desk based background research, questionnaires and interviews conducted for this study highlighted a number of significant factors. In the vast majority of new Member States and candidate countries collective bargaining and social dialogue, particularly at the sectoral level, is in its infancy. Existing research in the field is limited and for both these reasons reliable information can be difficult to obtain. In some cases, questionnaires and telephone interviews for the same country returned conflicting information. While some of this has a discernable factual basis, it has not always been possible to establish the reason for such discrepancies within the scope of this research.




3. National Chapters

3.1 Introduction

The aim of the national chapters is to provide:




  • Information on the structure of the local and regional governments, their responsibilities and financial arrangements and recent trends.

  • Brief background to the economic situation and key labour market trends in each country.

  • Information on industrial relations (collective bargaining structure, role of social partners, recent developments etc.).

  • Information on social partner organisations in the local and regional government sector (contact details, membership coverage, involvement in collective bargaining, links with other social partner organisations, participation in tripartite bodies etc.)

  • Information on links with European organisations/projects.

  • Information on collective bargaining / social dialogue in local and regional government sector (setting wages and other terms & conditions, trends, collective agreements etc.).

  • Description of the key concerns of the social partner organisations in the sector.

  • Details on successes in dealing with these challenges.

With the exception of the case study countries (Estonia, Hungary, Poland, Slovak Republic and Turkey) the national chapters are based on desk based background research and questionnaire surveys and cover baseline information for each country. The information contained in the national chapters for the case study countries is based on desk research, questionnaire surveys, telephone and face to face interviews. These chapters focus on more detail on employment, collective bargaining and social dialogue in the local and regional government sectors, as well as on the key issues affecting the sector.


The national chapters have been sent to EPSU and CEMR member organisations as well as certain national experts in order to clarify inconsistencies and to obtain additional information.
