Abstract

В настоящата статия е представена и анализирана еволюцията на трипартитното и бипартитното сътрудничество по отношение на социалното партньорство в България (1989 – 2019). Въведението представя подробен литературен преглед на развитието на социалния диалог за периода от гледна точка на изследователите, синдикатите и работодателските организации. Изложението на статията разглежда ключовите моменти в развитието на индустриалните отношения в България (1989 – 2019). Отражението на тоталитарното минало и установяването на неокорпоративен модел на индустриалните отношения в България след 1989 г. са зададени като основа за анализ наред с наличието на дълбока диспропорция в развитието на синдикатите, от една страна, и работодателските организации, от друга. Предлага се задълбочено проучване на еволюцията на синдикатите и на работодателските организации, като се има предвид радикалната социална трансформация, извършена през анализирания период. В заключение, развитието на индустриалните отношения, институционализацията на трипартизма, засилването на бипартитното сътрудничество в предприятията и на секторно, и на индустриално равнище представляват отделен елемент от българския „преходен период“. България може да бъде дадена като пример за развитието на неокорпоративен модел на индустриалните отношения. Трябва обаче да се подчертае, че функционирането на социалното партньорство до голяма степен зависи от наличието на вътрешно убеждение от страна на правителството, че е необходимо прилагането на тристранно сътрудничество. Може също така да се заключи, че ефективността на функционирането на тристранното сътрудничество и социалното партньорство в страните от Централна и Източна Европа, особено в България, не зависи нито от „силата“ на правителството, нито от неговия характер – коалиционно, квазикоалиционно  или еднопартийно. Бъдещето на социалния диалог в България включва националното схващане за социалния корпоратизъм, следвайки примера на Ирландия, Финландия, Дания и др.
