The ETUI takes EWC training forward

ETUI Education, then still called ETUCO, was one of the pioneers in the field of organising training for European Works Councils. As soon as the directive was published in 1994, dedicated training materials were developed and company based seminars were organised. As the number of EWCs continued to increase, the need for training also kept growing, leading to the appointment of a full-time Education Officer for this particular target group in 2007. The recast directive in 2009 acknowledged the right to training for EWC members, but also for the worker representatives in Special Negotiating Bodies. Add to that the members of representative bodies in European Companies (SE) and you get a potential of more than 1.000 international works councils, with over 20.000 employee representatives from all corners of Europe who need specific training which is necessary for the exercise of their duties.
