The glass industry: recent trends and changes in working conditions and employment relations

At its 317th Session in March 2013, the ILO Governing Body instructed the Office to conduct a research study on technological progress in the glass industry and its impact on employment structure in the industry.

This working paper aims to develop a better understanding of the impacts of technological changes in the industry, as well as of globalization and the financial crisis that began in 2008, on production and employment trends both globally and in specific countries and regions.
