Abstract

 

Increasingly, corporate decision-making takes place at transnational level; however, employees’ rights to information and consultation are still defined at national level. To bridge this gap, a 1994 Directive was adopted, aimed at promoting voluntary agreements on the constitution and operation of European works councils (EWCs). These EWCs would bring together employee representatives from each European country in which a multinational company has operations, in order to facilitate information disclosure and consultation with group-level management.
