The survey 
National surveys gather information on each country’s pension system. They go beyond what is available from other sources, and allow to gain a deep knowledge of the trade union perspective. Surveys were filled in by the National contacts in cooperation with relevant parties and other national trade unions. Inputs were also provided by the ETUC’s Women’s  Committte, the Youth Committee, the European Federation of retirees and elderly people FERPA and a sectoral trade union federation, IndustriAll.
