The European Commission’s Proposals on Worker Participation in the European Economic Community

Battaille, Marc-Hubert | January 1, 1981

The current trend toward greater worker participation in business decisions is reflected in European Economic Community developments. In this article, Mr. Battaille examines recent European Commission measures which attempt to harmonize national company law legislation in the Member States. The author focuses particularly on the Commission’s proposal for a Council Directive to ensure the right to information and consultation for workers of enterprises exercising their activities in more than one establishment or subsidiary in one or several Member States.
