A report of the European comparative analysis undertaken as part of a project led by Instituto Sindical de Trabajo, Ambiente y Salud (ISTAS) and developed in cooperation with Fondazione Di Vittorio,the Cardiff Work Environment Research Centre (Cardiff University) and NSZZ Solidarność

The project presented in this report was funded by the European Commission (VP/2016/004 Improving expertise in the field of industrial relations) and could not have been completed without this support. It was led by Instituto Sindical de Trabajo, Ambiente y Salud (ISTAS) from Spain and developed in
cooperation with Fondazione Di Vittorio from Italy, the Cardiff Work Environment Research Centre at Cardiff University in the UK and NSZZ Solidarność from Poland.
The report is an analysis based on a wide review of relevant research literature and five national studies of current practice, each of which was produced by individuals and members of research teams from each of the participating countries. Thus, Daniele Di Nunzio of the Fondazione Di Vittorio, was responsible for a report on Italy that is the basis of Chapter 4;

Claudia Narocki and Valeria Uberti-Bona from the Instituto Sindical de Trabajo, Ambiente y Salud (ISTAS) were responsible for providing the information on Spain that is the basis of Chapter 5;
while Kaj Frick produced a report on which he based Chapter 6 on Sweden; and David Walters and Emma Wadsworth from the Cardiff Work Environment Research Centre at Cardiff University in the UK, gathered the information on the UK on which they base Chapter 7.
In addition, we are grateful to Agnieszka Mińkowska of NSZZ Solidarność for the information on Poland.
Many people, too numerous to mention individually, in all the countries on which the project focused, collaborated by giving us their time and information. We are most grateful for their participation and the information thus provided.
While we thank all those who have supported this project, responsibility for the analysis and conclusions presented in this report remains that of its authors.
