Sadowski, Dieter. (1993) "The Effect of European Integration on National Industrial Relations Systems: The Ambiguous Case of Germany". In: UNSPECIFIED, Washington, CD. (Unpublished)
[From the Introduction]. What impact has the supranational European regulation and the politically induced and controlled integration of product, capital and labour markets exercised on the German industrial relations systems to date? While the effects of EC social and labour law and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice can easily be identified - leaving open the question of whether reality complies with the norms - the consequences of EC polity and policy changes are much harder to trace....Many of the questions raised will only receive a tentative, speculative answer. To inform the discussion I will successively address: firstly, the explicit supranational regulations of labour market institutions; secondly, the indirect intervention into labour markets via monetary and fiscal policies and via industrial policies. Finally, the consequences of German unification and German monetary union are given special attention to separate German from European developments and to allow cautious speculations about the consequences of a European Monetary Union as stipulated in the Maastricht Treaty.
