The Annual Conference of the WAGE Network "Wage, labour market and globalisation: from Cold War to European Union – in Central and Eastern Europe" (Timisoara)

The Annual Conference of the WAGE Network "Wage, labour market and globalisation: from Cold War to European Union – in Central and Eastern Europe"

Location: West University of Timisoara, Room A11 - 4, V. Parvan Street, Timisoara, Romania

Date : 10th – 11th of October 2019


The conference aims to establish a kind of inventory of the past forty years for the labour market in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe to cover: the initial situation (centrally planned wage strategy, mono‐syndicalism), the succession of reforms (political and economic liberalization, privatizations,
accession to the EU) and the current results (differential wage increases, employment situation, labour disputes, role of skills, union action).
