As the concept of participation starts to materialize in the Greek industrial relations system, the employer's monopoly of information relating to the enterprise cannot remain unchanged. No form of employee participation can be conceived separately from information. Recognition of a right to information is included in Law 1387/1983 on the control of collective dismissals, Law 1568/1985 on health and safety at work and Law 1385/1983 on regional supervisory councils relating to enterprises in the mining and quarrying industry. Furthermore, there is specific provision of the right to information in Law 1767/1988 on works councils, which enumerates the topics on which the employer is obliged to keep the works council informed, although infringement of this obligation does not affect the validity of the employer's decisions. Lastly, an obligation to keep the unions informed is provided for by Law 1876/1990 on collective bargaining.
