The ETUC’s landmark resolution ‘Towards a new framework for more democracy at work’, sets out a holistic approach to workers’ involvement, including stronger information and consultation rights and board-level participation. Prompt and effective workers’ involvement requires well-coordinated information, consultation and board-level representation.
The three existing EU information and consultation directives need updating, particularly as restructuring has become a permanent feature of company life. Restructuring and anticipation of change are not yet dealt with in these directives.
The ETUC website provides information on our activities in the field of workers’ participation, information and consultation and European Works Councils (EWCs), as well as restructuring and sustainable corporate governance. For more information please consult the ETUI worker participation website.
The ETUC is running a new project entitled "Workers’ Participation: the Key to Fair Digitalisation". This project will examine practices responding to the key challenges and questions surrounding workers’ participation, in light of the changes brought about by digitalisation. You can find the Report for the final conference here.
