Trade unions and European works councils - concepts for supporting the work of transnational interest representatives:
In the organisational area of the ver.di and CWU - such as in the large corporations in the telecommunications, postal and logistics sector - the establishment of European works councils is being prepared and planned with the participation of UNI Europa in accordance with Directive 94/45/EC. The unions are faced with the task here of developing concepts for supporting and consulting these bodies and of distinctly improving their ability to cooperate transnationally - even across the borders of individual international sector secretariats.
