La reforma laboral en el Uruguay 2005 – 2009. Participación para la regulación
It took place a very deep labor reform and resulted a new Labor Relations System Regulated and Participativo. The Washington Consensus approach may consider that there were new rigidities; but investment, gross internal product, employment and wages, continued growing. As results, the tripartites stages were consolidated, the social actors become stronger and a fairer distribution of power between employers and trade unions was reached. The government was the principal protagonist; with its proposals and bargaining style, created conditions for the development of the unions activities, achieved a bigger cooperation and secured high profits to capital. It becomes the reference point to unions conflicts about wages and with management about changes in laws with impact on power relations.
