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).

  • 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;
