Representativeness of the European social partner organisations: Banking


This study sets out to provide the necessary information for assisting the existing sectoral social dialogue in the banking sector. First, the report identifies the relevant national organisations on both sides of the industry. Second, it analyses the sector’s relevant organisations at European level. The study consists of three main parts: a summary of the sector’s economic background; an analysis of the social partner organisations in all of the EU Member States (with the exception of Latvia), with special emphasis on their membership, their role in collective bargaining and public policy, and their national and European affiliations; and finally, an analysis of the relevant European organisations, in particular their membership composition and their capacity to negotiate. The aim of the EIRO series of studies on representativeness is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. The impetus for these studies arisesropean Commission to recognise the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the EC Treaty provisions. Hence, this study is designed to provide the basic information required to establish and support sectoral social dialogue.
