Covid-19, Collective Bargaining and Social Dialogue
This report attempts to shed light on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the process
and outcomes of collective bargaining in particular and social dialogue more generally. It is
based upon the responses of more than 200 trade union officials to an online global survey
carried out between March and May of 2021 and includes the insights of frontline union
negotiators who were subjected to in-depth interviews by the authors.
