Arbeitsmärkte und Arbeitsbeziehungen in Osteuropa
Schlagworte:Arbeit, Arbeitmarkt, Osteuropa, Gewerkschaften
This article provides an overview of recent changes in the former Soviet Union and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe.

Trade unions often retain significant nominal representative status, but have little effective regulatory power, and employers’ representation is fragmented. Although most countries have introduced tripartite institutions, real decision making takes place at company level where management is in the driving seat.
