European Works Councils
European Works Councils and the European Company

Since its adoption in 1994 the European Works Councils directive (94/45/EC) has come to feature ever larger in the affairs of the EFBWW. There are currently in excess of 600 EWCs, of which around 60 in our sectors and the number is still growing.

The EFBWW has created a network of national EWC coordinators, the Multiproject Co-ordinators Group (MCG), which meets twice a year, to co-ordinate the EWC work in progress and ensure a proper exchange of information. The preparation and follow up of MCG activities is carried out by the EFBWW EWC Steering Committee.

In the near future the enlargement of the EU will be a new challenge. New agreements will have to be negotiated and a number of agreements will have to be renegotiated to make provisions for the new member states.
Another important development will be the coming into force of the European Regulation governing the statute for a European Company and the Directive concerning worker representation in the European Company.
