Trade Unions and Industrial Relations in Spain (1975-94): From Old to New Practices


  • M. Perez-Yruela

    () (Universidad de Cordoba Spain)


This paper represents an attempt to understand the evolution of the industrial relations system in Spain, and the roles unions have played in it. It is divided into four parts: The first gives a broad outline of the structure of the union movement, its organisational characteristics and its main strategies. The second analyses the history of the relationships between employers' organisations, trade unions and the state. It concentrates especially on the history of social pacts, which constitute a very important aspect of industrial relations practices during this period. The third section examines the history of industrial relations legislation, and its reception by the unions. In the final part, some conclusions are put forward.
