GROUP WORKS COUNCIL

An organ of the works constitution which may be established by the company works councils or establishment-level works councils of a group of companies (Works Constitution Act §§ 54 ff.). It is responsible for dealing with matters which concern the group as a whole or several of its member companies and which cannot be regulated by individual company or establishment-level works councils or need to be regulated uniformly for the entire group. Only the group works council can conclude special works agreements that apply throughout the group. Its other powers, the formation of committees and the conduct of its business follow the corresponding regulations laid down for the company works council.
