This project aimed to promote the input of cross-country comparative analyses at the level of themes and industries using the data of the WageIndicator web survey about wages, working conditions and working hours. This input was focused on the European trade union involvement in developing workplace industrial relations and Europe-wide bargaining. Central was a conference on industrial relations and bargaining, held in April 2007. The project resulted in the book "Bargaining issues in Europe: comparing countries and industries", published by the European Trade Union Institute for Research, Education and Health and Safety -ETUI-EHRS - in Brussels in four languages: English, Spanish, Hungarian and German.
