Abstract

This report looks at case studies of EWC practice in companies located in four new Member States – the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia – in the context of EU enlargement. It investigates the impact of EWC participation on industrial relations in the NMS, considers how EWCs differ in the political and institutional traditions of the NMS, and evaluates the factors that enable EWCs to respond more effectively to the challenges of intracompany competition, relocation and restructuring.
