Labour market analysis in the commerce sector: which are the key challenges and factors of change?
The social partners of the commerce sector (EuroCommerce and UNI Europa) jointly launched a European study project in order to gain a better understanding of the impact of current core trends regarding employment and work arrangements in the commerce sector (retail, wholesale and e-commerce) across different EU Member States. Besides desk research and data collection via interviews with representatives of unions and employers' organisations, case studies are to be performed in ten European countries. The aim is to provide comprehensive insight into the three research topics:
- the structure and major trends in the EU commerce sector
- analysis of the labour market and changing forms of employment and work arrangements and
- industrial relations
- International institutions
