THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL AGREEMEN IN EUROPE: CRISIS OR
In Western Europe the economic and social agreemen between government and syndicate and managerial confederations ("three-party system") is an important part of nacional politics and a distinctive feature of working relationships. Recent changes in the economic and social conditions, such as labor strikes, and in economic structure (globalization, flexibility) nave afectes the syndicate's power, the employers' motivation to be involved in national contracts, and the freedom governments have to pursue national politics. However, these changes have not diminished the economic and social agreements. On the contrary, these agreements have been introduced or reinforced in countries without a three-party system tradition. Economic and social changes have only affected the nature of the agreements; for example, the government has more initiative to control wage restraint more than before.
