O trabalho da mulher e as negociações coletivas

FOR MANY reasons, women go to the labour market: emancipation, leading to professional plans; income loss due to spouse's unemployment or other changes; increases in the number of women heading families. However, it has been an uneasy transition, as in the current conjunctural context people looking for a job are experiencing all sort of barriers. Another dificulties even worse women conditions in the labour market. They have to do with gender discrimination, which leads to low salaries, inequality in employment access and opportunities, unemployment. To better show this situation, Dieese gathered and analysed the results of collective bargaining in our country, from 1996 to 2000, in the gender context. The results show how far from equality we are referring to gender issues, and the relevance of negotiation as an instrument of collective regulamentation in labour relations.
