The 5th Changing Employment Research Paper in the series has now been published and is available to download for free. The paper entitled "Contested arenas of transnational industrial democracy: the case of European social dialogue in Arcelormittal" by Mona Aranea.
The paper discusses the potential of European company agreements for the improvement of industrial democracy in transnational corporations. An actor-centred empirical analysis of the ArcelorMittal company agreement of 2009 illustrates the challenges trade unions face in social dialogue at transnational level. The empirical findings are based on qualitative interviews with trade unions active in ArcelorMittal in the three countries of Spain, Germany and Belgium, carried out between 2013 and 2016.
The Research Paper Series has been developed to encourage debate and disseminate activities associated with the network. The central remit of the Research Paper Series is to explore and encourage debate on the changing nature of employment in Europe in the context of challenges, threats and opportunities for employees and employers.
The network would like to invite contributors from within and out with the network. You can find out more about the research paper seminar series under the research section of the web-site.
