Labour Unions, business co-ordination and economic adjustment in Western Europe, 1980-90
This paper discusses the development of labour relations during the 1980s in Western Europe. It argues that a proper understanding of the different trajectories indifferent countries cannot be understood by taking into account either state policies or employers preferences alone. Through their local sections, labour unions are ableto impose costs on employers when these want to reorganise firms in order to adapt to changing markets exigencies. Adjustment therefore is conditioned by the organisation of employers in the economy, and of unions in the firm. The paper combines these two dimensions, and discusses their impact upon patterns of adjustment in labour relations during the 1980s in Germany, Sweden, Belgium, theUK, France and the Netherlands
