Consolidating segmentation: post-Socialist employment relations in central and eastern Europe

Martin, Roderick and Cristescu-Martin, Anamaria M. (2004) Consolidating segmentation: post-Socialist employment relations in central and eastern Europe Industrial Relations Journal, 35, (6), pp. 629-646. (doi:10.1111/j.1468-2338.2004.00337.x).

Record type: Article


The article argues that, of the four major potential mechanisms for integration—the state, tripartite social partnerships, employer and employee organisations and shared values—in Central and Eastern Europe only the trade unions are contributing significantly towards national employment relations convergence. Against a background of imminent European Union accession, incorporation into global production systems, economic growth and gradual improvement in real incomes, four divergent employment relations systems are thus emerging: the state budget, privatised or about to be privatised, private and multinational.
