Does anybody know any glossary (DE-IT-EN)about trade unions? I tried to look myself, even for some useful links on this subject, with no result..

Try the ILO website ( It doesn't have a glossary as such as far as I could see, but does have links to its offices in various countries including Italy and Germany. Italian isn't one of my languages so I can't tell how helpful that would be, but the German site has links to databases which should be useful to you. You could also try the ETUC site ( which is in English and French and has a lot of links.
Good luck.

...has a labor relations glossary.




The definitions given are helpful - you decide about the exact terms. Sometimes these are concepts for which various equivalents exist, because there is no 1:1 equivalent for German constructs in the US, for instance. So, I find it useful although I don't always go with their suggested term.
