Company Policy

 
The EFFAT Company Policy department helps establish and support European Works Councils (EWCs) in the EFFAT sectors and fosters crossborder cooperation and solidarity in large transnational companies (TNCs). 
 
The Company Policy department represents and advocates EFFAT views with senior management of TNCs, social partners, stakeholders and the European institutions. This involves:
  • establishing and coordinating ethical EWCs in companies;
  • monitoring legal and political developments relating to information, consultation and participation in European companies; 
  • providing expertise, advice and information on best practices to improve the functioning of EWCs and other European-level work related to multinationals from a trade union perspective;
  • supporting industrial disputes and solidarity campaigns at the European level.
