Arbeits- und Betriebszeiten in der Industrie in der EU - Ergebnisse einer Ad-hoc-Umfrage der EU


  • Klaus Wohlrabe



Die Ergebnisse einer Ad-hoc-Umfrage, die die Europäische Union für die Industrie in einem Fünfjahresturnus durchführt, zeigen eine Ähnlichkeit der Beschäftigtenstrukturen mit einem hohen Anteil unbefristeter Arbeitsverträge in Europa auf: Der aktuelle Personalbestand wird als zu hoch empfunden, so dass mittelfristig mit einem Abbau von Arbeitsplätzen in der europäischen Industrie zu rechnen ist. Gründe hierfür sind insbesondere verstärkter Preisdruck und die Höhe der Arbeitskosten. Einstellungen werden wahrscheinlich vor allem in Spezial- und Nischenbereichen entstehen, in denen hoch qualifizierte Arbeitskräfte gefragt sind. Auch der Wunsch nach zunehmender Flexibilisierung des Arbeitsmarktes ist in allen EU-Ländern zu beobachten.
