Rough waters: European trade unions in a time of crises

Steffen Lehndorff, Heiner Dribbusch and Thorsten Schulten

Publication date : 2017

Number of pages : 316

Edited by :

Steffen Lehndorff, Heiner Dribbusch and Thorsten Schulten

This book analyses the development of trade unions in eleven countries (Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK) since the early 2000s. The individual chapters focus on unions' structural, organisational, institutional and discursive power resources. 

One feature in particular emerges from the turbulent European trade union landscape, namely the challenge of becoming politically more autonomous while long-standing institutional power resources are at increasing risk of being dismantled or of losing their effectiveness. The book also includes a chapter on the changes and challenges of European trade union federations in times of crisis.
