New UNI Europa research indicates that the weakening of collective bargaining is a key driver behind increasing income inequality in Europe.
“This report shows that inequality is a deliberate policy choice. When policy-makers exclude working people from having a say at work, they are taking aim at shared prosperity. The tools for workers to claim a fair share of the wealth they create are dismantled. This money is redistributed upwards to be captured by shareholders instead” explained Oliver Roethig, Regional Secretary of UNI Europa.
