As the European Community moves towards full integration of its members' economies, one of the most far-reaching changes will be in the European labour market. The increased mobility of labour - as well as capital, goods, and services - will have profound consequences for workers, employers and unions. The authors address such questions as: will European unions become more decentralized and increase their infuence?; will the German system of industrial relations serve as a model for power-sharing between workers and managers?; do benefits systems hinder worker mobility?; will the completion of the EC internal market lead to reductions in the disparities in incomes across countries?; are European immigration policies responsible for creating unemployment in several countries?; and, what are the implicaitons of integration for other parts of the world?
