This study provides information designed to aid sectoral social dialogue in the woodworking sector. The study is divided into three parts: a brief overview of the sector’s economic and employment background; an analysis of the relevant social partner organisations in all the EU Member States, with special emphasis on their membership, their role in collective bargaining, social dialogue and public policy and their national and European affiliations; and an analysis of the relevant European organisations, particularly their membership composition and their capacity to negotiate. The aim of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. The impetus of these studies arises from the European Commission’s desire to recognise the representative social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).
