A comparison between Germany, France and Italy
Industrial relations in Europe differ a lot from country to country and it is essential for companies operating on a global scale to understand in which situations they will find themselves negotiating locally. The profound differences between Germany, France and Italy were at the heart of the debate “The German dual trade union representation, the Italian and the French trade unions”, held yesterday in Milan and in which Valeria Morosini, Partner of the Firm, participated.
“The history of the French trade unions, its cultural background and its fragmentation make it a particularly difficult interlocutory for businesses which sometimes find themselves exposed to having to face situations which are even extreme – comments Valeria Morosini. – Lawyers are not only being asked for legal support, but also for extensive experience in the field.”
The event, organised by GIDP Human Resources Director Association, offered companies some indications about the future of industrial relations with particular reference to Italy, in order the contribute to a more effective relationship with trade unions and greater competitiveness internationally.
