The essay deals with some current trends in the industrial relations of the European pork sec-tor. Although it is still relatively little investigated by the labour law and industrial relations literature, the pork sector represents a privileged observatory to understand the profound trans-formations of the economy, the labour market and the systems of industrial relations. In par-ticular, in its first part, it focuses on some factors that have favored the international opening of the meat market and increased competitive pressure on national industries and on some criti-cisms of the industrial relations systems in Europe (national examples from the Belgian case and the Danish case). Subsequently it focuses on the Italian case, regarding the structural characteristics of the supply chain and the major criticalities that are emerging in the industrial rela-tions.
Keywords: Industrial relations; Pork sector; Outsourcing; Offshoring; Collective bargaining; Strike; Cooperatives.
