Measuring Attitudes of Employer and Trade Union Representatives on Social Dialogue


Measuring Attitudes of Employer and Trade Union Representatives on Social Dialogue

This questionnaire was developed to understand the opinions and viewpoints of employer and worker representatives on social dialogue as a proposed mechanism to attain agreement between Social Partners, especially with regard to labor disputes.

This was part of the social dialogue promotion project implemented by BusinessMed (Union of Mediterranean Confederations of Enterprises) and The Arab Trade Union Confederation in three southern Mediterranean countries: the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Tunisian Republic and the Kingdom of Morocco. This questionnaire will be applied to a large number of employer and worker representatives in the three countries.

Attaining beneficial and accurate results through this questionnaire requires an honest and explicit answer to all the questionnaire statements, where each question can be answered by one of the following choices:

 

Strongly Agree: This means complete agreement and support for the statement and in all cases.

Agree: This means you support the statement as it represents your opinion in the majority of cases.

Rather agree: This means you may agree or disagree with the statement but the possibility of agreement is greater than the possibility of disagreement, or you may agree with the statement with some reservations.

 

Rather disagree: This means you may agree or disagree with the statement but the possibility of disagreement is greater than the possibility of agreement.

Disagree: This means that the statement does not represent your point of view or opinion in the majority of cases.

Strongly disagree: This means that you absolutely do not agree with the statement and you cannot support it in any case.

Do not know: This means that you have no specific stand on the statement.

Finally, we would like to affirm to you that the results of this questionnaire will be analyzed based on the response of a large number of employer and worker union representatives in the three countries, and the responses will not be dealt with as individual cases. Therefore, the privacy of all respondents will be respected and their responses will be treated confidentially.
