SE (Societas Europaea, European Company) Works Council Delivery Hero

On 16 April 2018, an agreement establishing an SE Works Council in Delivery Hero (which owns Foodora) was signed in Berlin with the German Food, Beverages and Catering Union (Gewerkschaft Nahrung-Genuss-Gaststätten, NGG), the Italian Federation of Workers of Commerce, Hotels, Canteens and Services (Federazione Italiana Lavoratori Commercio, Albergo, Mensa e Servizi, FILMCAMS –CGIL) and the European EFFAT, (European Federation of Food, Agriculture and Tourism).

This agreement specifies that each country in which the company is active must have at least one employee representative in the ‘European Company’ (SE) works council and the council must be provided with detailed information on the company’s strategies, on any investment or divestment plans and on plans which may impact the work organisation and employee interests. Also, the agreement specifies that employee representatives can participate in the supervisory board, where they should be represented in equal numbers as the stakeholders and will hold the same voting rights. Consequently, when the new Delivery Hero SE was created in July 2018, employee representatives joined the supervisory board.
