EWC: ETUC asks the European Parliament to complete the changes to the proposed directive by the end of the year
The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) is seeking a successful, early resolution to the recast Directive on European Works Councils by the end of the year. This message is being sent today to the European Parliament.
The ETUC Executive Committee gave broad support for the outcome of the talks conducted by the General Secretary and Deputy General Secretary with BusinessEurope, and decided on this basis to ask the European Parliament to aim to complete its considerations by the end of the year. Otherwise there is a real risk that the issue could fall through lack of time.
John Monks, ETUC General Secretary, said: ‘With the dark clouds of economic recession looming, we need stronger European Works Councils as soon as possible and I hope that this consideration can guide the European Parliament in its work.’
