Training series: an introduction to European Works Councils

 

European Works Councils (EWCs) bring together employee representatives from the different European countries in which a multinational company has operations. Given that new workers are regularly elected to represent their colleagues on EWCs, there is a need for regular training to bring newcomers up to speed on the possibilities that their role provides. Together with the ETUI and ETF, UNI Europa organised a training series on EWC in October 2020. The recordings are made available below:

Session 1: in this session, trainers provide an overview of the legal background as well as of examples of EWC agreements.

 

Session 2: in this sessions trainers take a look at European Works Councils (EWCs) in practice. They aim to address the following questions: What are the responsibilities of EWC members? What does it take to effectively organise an EWC? What can a proactive EWC achieve?

 

This sessions begins with a short history and statistics of European Works Councils (EWCs) and the provides an overview of the legal basis of Special Negotiating Bodies (SNBs).
