This chapter examines European labour law. It focuses on the binding unity in European labour law and the divergence in terms of the competing interests of capital and labour. It addresses the following questions: In what sense precisely is the articulation of unity and divergence not problematic but instead productive for law? What are the ideological effects of this productivity? What strategic use can be made of the articulation — and at what level — of unity and divergence?
