European Works Councils bring employers and workers representatives together, in order to promote dialogue, and to ensure that workers are informed and consulted, particularly when decisions taken in another member state will affect them.

However, the TUC believes that the EWC Directive is too weak - that there is a serious gap between the aims and practice of the Directive, particularly in terms of consultation - and that a process of revision is both necessary and urgent. We are working with the ETUC to lobby member governments and the European Commission to beef up the Directive and make sure it delivers real consultation with workers.
