1 Eucoban report 2012 Erlend Hansen

2 New lay-out in 2012  Three former reports merged into one  Steel survey continues  No macroeconomic chapter from ETUI  No appendix with Excel tables  Improved design 2

3 Outline Economic chapter Summary of replies Evaluation of wage coordination rule 3

4 Economic chapter 4

5 Main focus on:  GDP growth  Labour productivity  Real unit labour cost  Adjusted wage share  Employment and unemployment  Employment in manufacturing industries  Inflation (HICP) 5

6 General ideas  Linked to wage coordination rule  Limited amount of text and analyses  Tables showing 35 countries (plus EU 27/EA 17)  Both annual percentage changes and indices  Most charts cover EU 27 and EA 17  2012 is a year of transition  Data on web site (biannually + database)  We want feedback from you! 6

9 Participation by country 9

10 Participation in metal survey

11 General ideas  Still questionnaire in Word format  Same 12 month period (May to May)  Same structure as before; demands and results  Wages, working time, pensions, equal opportunities, training, precarious work  Only most interesting information included  Present best practices  The complete replies in appendix 11

12 New agreements last 12 months  Metal: 15 countries  Mining, chemical and energy: 10 countries  Textile, clothing and leather: 5 countries  Steel: 10 countries  A few reports say that last year’s agreement applies to two years.  Some agreements are only local. 12

13 Evaluation of wage coordination rule 13

14 Unique calculation  Value Of the Whole Agreement, not total labour costs (VOWA)  Deduct inflation (HICP) and labour productivity, look at more than one year  Result: Balanced Participation in Productivity Gains (BPPG)  Is there a need for a calculation tool or a training course? 14

15 Difficult to monitor wage development  Fewer national collective agreements  Different growth during intervals, first months’ increases might stem from old agreements  Calculations to be done on annual basis  Non-wage elements. Unclear effect, sometimes with subsidies from the state.  Wage drift, positive or negative  Bonuses and lump sum increases  Precarious work, unknown salaries 15

16 VOWA figures 2012  Metal: 9 countries, less than half of agreements fulfill coordination rule  Chemical: 3 countries, 1 fulfills rule  TCL: None  Some more might be collected due to mistake in original questionnaire. 16

17 THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION! 17
