EWC Academy - Academy for European Works Councils and SE Works Councils

Conferences, seminars and workshops


The EWC Academy (and its forerunner organization) have been holding conferences and seminars for the members of European works councils, SE works councils and Special Negotiating Bodies (SNB) since January 2009. So far employee representatives from 277 companies have taken part including many of them for several times. This represents around 21% of all transnational works council bodies in Europe.
