Why don't we ever hear about strikes in Germany in the news? They seem to be quite massive and varied. What's going on?
Colman posts about Social Europe.
If you want to keep informed on what's going on in other countries with respect to labour negociations, the only site I found is EIRO (european industrial relations observatory on-line).
Now the real question is why even national press doesn't talk about the regular small scale strikes or even successful employer - employee negociations.
For example, according to this interview Jean-Christophe Le Duigou secretary of the french hard-line trade union CGT says that CGT ends up signing about 80% of all deals, but its (media) image is about always saying no.
