|Title:||European collective action in times of crisis||Authors:||Stan, Sabina; Helle, Idar; Erne, Roland||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6302||Date:||May-2015||Online since:||2015-01-19T12:43:38Z||Abstract:||This introductory article to the special issue proposes a more encompassing view of transnational collective action in Europe, which goes beyond the classical, country-by-country oriented, comparative industrial relations approach. Instead, we propose an extension of focus to capture also other actors, action repertoires, places and levels. Specifically, we introduce and integrate the contributions to this issue, by extending our analytical perspectives from traditional forms of employment to precarious and posted workers; from national and European trade union structures to informal groups of workers and social movements; from unions’ traditional strongholds in manufacturing multinationals to workers in the meat industry, health care or occupied factories; from national unions seen as coherent units to a perspective that emphasizes their internal contradictions; from the analysis of discrete actions to historically more encompassing perspectives; and from utilitarian views on collective action to a larger perspective that assesses the analysis of the importance of collective struggles for the making and unmaking of a new European working class.||Funding Details:||Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Sage Publications||Journal:||Transfer: European Review of Labour and Research||Volume:||21||Issue:||2||Copyright (published version):||2015 the authors||Keywords:||Trade unions; European working class; Transnationalism; Euro crisis; Methodological nationalism; Collective action||DOI:||10.1177/1024258915573177||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
