Quelle vulnérabilité des travailleurs européens face aux conditions de travail dégradées?
Les mutations organisationnelles et technologiques engendrent des risques de dégradation des conditions de travail susceptibles d'affecter le bien-être et la santé des travailleurs. Le projet InGRID, financé dans le cadre du programme européen Horizon 2020 pour la recherche et l'innovation, développe de nouvelles méthodes pour mieux identifier les travailleurs qui font face à ces risques. À partir de données recueillies entre 1995 et 2015 pour les quinze pays fondateurs de l'Union européenne, ce 4-pages dresse...
Extending working life: What do workers want?
In the context of moves to raise the legal retirement age in many EU Member States, this article explores the views of workers about the issue of extending working life. It highlights differences in the share of workers regarding the age they would like to work to and the ability to work until 60 in terms of employment status, gender and country. It also presents the views of social partners on the subject, with trade unions in most Member States opposing the extension of working life through raising the pension age and employer organisations being generally in favour of this.

Worker health is good for the economy: Union density and psychosocial safety climate as determinants of country differences in worker health and productivity in 31 European countries
Work stress is recognized globally as a social determinant of worker health. Therefore we explored whether work stress related factors explained national differences in health and productivity (gross domestic product (GDP)). We proposed a national worker health productivity model whereby macro market power factors (i.e. union density), influence national worker health and GDP via work psychosocial factors and income inequality. We combined five different data sets canvasing 31 wealthy European countries. Aggregated worker self-reported health accounted for 13 per cent of the variance in national...
Une nouvelle enquête révèle que l'insécurité de l'emploi et les restructurations sont les causes premières de stress lié au travail
La moitié des travailleurs européens considère que le stress lié au travail est un problème courant, et quatre personnes sur dix estiment que ce problème n'est pas correctement pris en charge par leur employeur. L'insécurité de l'emploi et les restructurations apparaissent comme les causes premières de stress lié au travail. Peu de gens ont connaissance des politiques et programmes d'aide aux travailleurs qui poursuivent leur carrière jusqu'à l'âge de la retraite et au-delà,...
Socioeconomic position, psychosocial work environment and disability in an ageing workforce: a longitudinal analysis of SHARE data from 11 European countries
Objectives Prevention of disability in the ageing workforce is essential for sustaining economic growth in Europe. In order to provide information on entry points for preventive measures, it is important to better understand sociodemographic, socioeconomic and work-related determinants of disability in older employees. We aimed to test the hypothesis that low socioeconomic position and exposure to a stressful psychosocial work environment at baseline contribute to later disability. We further assumed that the association of socioeconomic position with disability is partly mediated by exposure to...
After restructuring: labour markets, working conditions and life satisfaction
The ERM Report 2012 focuses on the consequences of restructuring for employees. It examines which employees lost their job at the onset of the economic crisis, which of them found a new job and how both job loss and subsequent re-employment impacted on their overall life situation and satisfaction. It also looks at the impact on working conditions for employees who remain at the restructured firm.

Informal workers across Europe: evidence from 30 Countries
The European Social Survey data are used to analyze informal employment at the main job in 30 countries. Overall, informality decreases from South to West to East to North. However, dependent work without contract is more prevalent in Eastern Europe than in the West, except for Ireland, the UK and Austria. Between 2004 and 2009, no cases found when unemployment and dependent informality rates in a country went up together, suggesting that work without contract is pro-cyclical in Europe. Dependent informality rate is inversely related to skills (measured by either schooling or occupation). The low...
