Viking - Laval - Rüffert: consequences and policy perspectives

Publication date : 2010

Edited by :

Andreas Bücker and Wiebke Warneck

The Viking-Laval – Rüffert cases raise the question of the relationship between market freedoms and fundamental social rights, with a particular focus on the freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining and the right to strike. In its rulings on these cases the ECJ has put in question the traditional relationship between market freedoms on a European level and national systems of industrial relations. This publication, part of a project entitled ‘The ECJ’s Viking, Laval and Rüffert judgements: Consequences and Policy Perspectives’ was prepared by a group of academic lawyers and practitioners. Its focus is to analyse from both a legal and policy perspective the consequences the ECJ decisions have on national industrial relations systems.
