WORKERS' DELEGATES

Workforce representatives of employees in enterprises or workplaces with fewer than 50 and more than 10 employees, and of public servants in local authorities with fewer than 50 and more than 9 public servants. Their number varies between one and three, they are elected by majority vote of the entire workforce in so-called union elections , and they have the same powers and responsibilities, facilities for workers' representatives and guarantees for workers' representatives as members of workers' committees or staff councils . They play an important role in the Spanish industrial relations system, both because of the specific representational functions they perform and because although formally they are not a union channel of representation they are a means through which trade unions can influence an enterprise's activities. See trade union delegates .
