Research Group "Individualisation and Integration"
The Swiss National Science Foundation, the Institute for Political Science of the University of Berne together with the private research institute Dr. Adrian Vatter "Politikforschung & -beratung" choose this project in regards to the findings about the future bargaining structure of industrial relations.
Within the struggle to reach a competitive position in the world market, the Swiss industries have traditionally reached good results. This was in part due to the friendly relations between business interests and trade unions. In the public area there is - now - a discussion going on about deregulation and breaking up the collective bargaining system.
Is this only a media event or is there a real process going on? What will be the outcomes of this new bargaining system, if there is one?
In the short period of 30 month, Michael Meyrat will analyze the bargaining process in four industries (construction, machine building, banking and chemical industry) in the period of 1986 to 1997.
