Panel 24: Workers' participation and the introduction of new technology

Wednesday 29 June, 11:00-12:30

The panel will take as its starting point the fact that, in most Member States, employee representatives have the right to be informed and consulted on the introduction of new technology. Under the fallback provisions of the EWC and SE Directives, the EWC is to be informed and consulted about the introduction of new working methods or processes; accordingly, many EWC agreements have also secured this right. Since new technology is seldom introduced in an isolated way at one site alone, its introduction can have important cross-site implications. The panel, exploring the extent to which the introduction of digital technology has been addressed at the national and European company level by worker participation, will also assess the potential for coordinating these strategies and approaches across national borders.
