Abstract

 

In September 1994, the Council of Ministers decided on a Directive on the establishment of a European Works Council (EWC) for the purposes of informing and consulting employees (94/45/EC). The emergence of EWCs is a major part of the development of an industrial relations system at European level. In September 1996, in Varese, an agreement based on Article 13 was signed between Whirlpool Europe srl and the workers’ representatives, on the establishment of the Whirlpool Europe Employee Committee – WEEC.
