This article is part of our special report Social Europe: Bringing back democracy at work on the EU political agenda.
18 out of 28 EU countries have a legally guaranteed right to a say for employees in the management and supervisory boards of companies.
This adds to employee participation via collective agreements. This worker’s voice is part of a democratic Europe. Securing and strengthening it is supposed to increase the acceptance of the EU.
The question is: Is the worker’s voice currently experiencing tail- or headwinds from Brussels? And more specifically: How to assess and evaluate the EU Commission’s new proposal for company law reforms?
This was the subject of the European dialogue 2018 organised by the Hans Böckler Foundation and the European Trade Union Institute on 26 and 27 April.
