Voluntary European Works Councils

This article analyses the 59 agreements establishing voluntary European Works Councils (EWCs) during the decade up to September 1995. Originally confined to companies based in France, and later also Germany, the geographical coverage has now widened. However, EWCs remain concentrated in a small number of sectors. This may reflect the distinctive strategies of specific international trade union organizations, which are signatories of almost half the agreements. The article considers the implications of the characteristics of these agreements for the likely development of EWCs once the directive adopted by the European Union in 1994 comes into effect.
