Negotiating European Works Councils: a comparative study of Article 6 and Article 13 agreements
The European Works Councils Directive came into force on 22 September 1996. This report examines the content of Article 6 agreements concluded following the adoption of the Directive and compares them with the voluntary agreements under Article 13, which were negotiated prior to September 1996. This is the third collaborative report on EWCs produced by the European Commission and the Foundation. It is intended to serve as a useful tool for the social partners in their negotiation of EWC agreements.
