This report forms part of a wide-ranging ETUI project, which aims to map changes in unionisation and the varying organizational structures of unions in the ‘new member states’ of the EU. The author demonstrates convincingly that the recent development of the union movement was heavily conditioned by its history which explains the apparently decentralized structure of the Czech labour movement. Despite the substantial decline in membership, unions have an improved knowledge of how to get the best results from enterprise-level bargaining and an improved ability to exercise influence at the national level.
