This unique book offers a comprehensive systematization and overview of the EU´s emerging ‘acquis’ and practice of Collective Labour Law. Although the core aspects of Collective Labour Law lie outside the EU’s competence to regulate, the laws and industrial relations systems of Member States are undoubtedly influenced by the EU, and the involvement of Social Partners, i.e. representatives of employers and workers, is essential for many aspects of EU law and policy.

This unique book offers a comprehensive systematization and overview of the EU´s emerging ‘acquis’ and practice of Collective Labour Law. Although the core aspects of Collective Labour Law lie outside the EU’s competence to regulate, the laws and industrial relations systems of Member States are undoubtedly influenced by the EU, and the involvement of Social Partners, i.e. representatives of employers and workers, is essential for many aspects of EU law and policy.

Featuring contributions from scholars and practitioners from across Europe, the first part of the book provides an introduction to key aspects, theories and topics of EU Collective Labour Law, including discussion of relevant EU law and case law of the Court of Justice of the EU. Chapters then move on to analyse and reflect on the most fundamental and challenging subtopics, questions and issues in this area, engaging with current debates and potential future developments. Respecting differences in views, approaches, and evaluations, it offers a variety of perspectives on the relationship between Collective Labour Law and the EU.

Scholars and students of EU and labour law will find this book an essential resource. Its critical examination of contemporary and future issues will also prove useful for practitioners, social partners and policymakers across the EU.
Critical Acclaim
‘The intense Europeanization of the production of goods and services makes it urgent to agree on common rules relating to employers' and workers' representation, collective bargaining, collective labour conflicts and peaceful settlements. This book is an in-depth analysis of this rather underdeveloped dimension of the European Labour Law. Drawing on the knowledge and thoughts of mostly young, but outstanding, contributors, the volume clarifies complex issues and includes possible solutions for the future of the EU social partnership.’
– Jean-Michel Servais, University of Gerona, Spain and Honorary President of the International Society for Labour Law and Social Security

‘This book offers a remarkably interesting and systematic collection of thoughts on EU labour law provided by the brightest academics in the field. A must read for all those who are interested in what is happening in modern European labour law.’
– Nikita Lyutov, Kutafin Moscow State Law University, Russia and North-West University, South Africa

‘This nuanced interrogation of EU collective labour law reveals a regime in distress. The authors deliver stunning insights into the inherent stresses between EU public policy choices and a collective framework that advances the “human face” of labour rights. Their conclusion that an enhanced EU collective labour law should be an important building block is one that deserves the attention of the EU and its avid watchers.’
– Desirée LeClercq, Cornell University, US
