||Privatization in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and its implications for occupational safety and health and the environment
||1998, Vol.8, No.4, p.451-460. Illus.
||Privatization is the key to a well-functioning market economy. Transition has unleashed a complex process with industries in flux, breakups, and mergers, and countries face new health problems. Globalization generates lower wages, relaxes standards, and introduces new work practices. Change must not be abused. Studies show that union-organized workplaces are safer than when no union is present and that an orderly industrial relations system with appropriate collective bargaining mechanisms is important. The problems are political more than technical; the new social partners must engage in dialogue. Topics: alcoholism; collective agreements; diet; Eastern Europe; economic aspects; environment; industrial organization; multinational enterprises; qualifications; role of government; role of private bodies; role of workers organizations; small enterprises; smoking; social aspects; transition economies; unemployment; work organization.
