EWCs - TNC

Political Secretary: Enrico Somaglia - e.somaglia@effat.org

Company Work coordinates cross-border cooperation and solidarity in transnational companies (TNCs) that operate in the EFFAT sectors. It represents and advocates EFFAT views towards TNC management, social partners, stakeholders, and the European institutions. To effectively defend workers’ interests and ensure sustainable corporate governance, EFFAT promotes trade union rights, collective bargaining, and information, consultation, and participation rights in transnational companies. EFFAT tasks include establishing and taking part in European Works Councils (EWCs) that operate in the EFFAT sectors. This entails setting up and coordinating ethical EWCs and providing legal and technical expertise to Special Negotiating Bodies (SNBs) and European Works Councils.

EFFAT set up a dedicated TNC and EWCs committee to follow the uptake and implementation of EFFAT company work plans.

The 2019 EFFAT Congress elected Silvie Mariën (FGTB Horval, Belgium) as TNC-EWCs Committee Chair and Carles Catala Pinyol (CCOOservicios, Spain) and David Gill ( Usdaw, UK) as Vice-Chairs.
