Eurispes has signed international cooperation agreements: the industrial relations sector examines decentralised collective bargaining at company and local level, following an approach in line with industrial relations theory: the analysis covers all the relations developed between social actors at the different levels of negotiation. In addition to the traditional issues of bargaining processes (hours, wages, etc.), the sector attaches great importance to the quality of the relationship between workers` representatives and management, but also between workers` representatives and workers, as well as to management and workers. There is a dual method of studying labour relations: a quantitative method through a database that defines all decentralised collective agreements and a qualitative method that aims to understand the new dynamics of labour relations. Particular attention is paid to the impact of technological and organisational changes on labour relations and, more specifically, on worker participation. The quality of decentralised collective bargaining and industrial relations is closely linked to the innovative capacity of enterprises; Innovation processes and collective bargaining play an essential role in workforce management, improving the quality of professional profiles and defining the competition strategy of the regional economic and industrial system.
