EWCs: the rules of the game

Employment and Social policy - Webinars
Date: Monday, 15 January 2018

Venue: online course  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

 

Description

It has been more than 20 years now since the first formal European Works Councils have been established. About 20.000 worker representatives travel around Europe to meet at least once a year and discuss topics which are of interest for the workforce of their companies across borders. 

New EWCs are being established every year and new members are being elected and appointed continuously.  This means there is a great need for training on some of the basic aspects. 

This on-line course is intended to respond to that need. It will involve about 12 hours of work.

Objectives

The following aims have been set:

  • enable newly elected or appointed EWC or SNB members to get acquainted with the legal aspects and practice of European worker representation;
  • ensure a smooth integration of new representatives in a group with more experienced colleagues;
  • provide an overview of the legal rules governing the EWC activities and the trade union guidelines on how to use these in practice;
  • encourage reflection on the usefulness of a EWC and the importance of worker representation at European level;
  • consider how negotiations can lead to a positive result and how a EWC can be more efficient;
  • stimulate communication between worker representatives of different multinational groups and sectors.
