Abstract

This paper outlines the purpose and the economic theory underpinning the Uni-Europa Graphical co-ordination of collective bargaining within a European context policy. It then analyses the development of the policy in terms of its scope, its institutions and its information networks. It discusses the statistical series and quantification problems involved in attempting to assess the extent to which the policy's guidelines are being achieved. The majority of UEG affiliates, however, are experiencing difficulties in gaining bargained wage increases at the national level equal to the sum of inflation increases plus average national productivity increases. Finally, it assesses the future prospects for the policy.
