Around the world in 80 ways – Between competition and solidarity
Born out of the controversy caused by cases of cross-border restructuring and its employment impact, European works councils (EWCs) are considered a key tool for managing the impact of globalisation. According to the agreements establishing them, the vast majority of EWCs should be informed and consulted regularly on general topics such as employment matters, production or company structure. This fact sheet forms part of the Eurofound resource pack on Around the world in 80 ways – today’s global market place. The pack explores the impact of globalisation, providing insights into developments, perceptions and measures dealing with its consequences.
