European Works Councils
This section focuses on the European Works Council bodies installed within multinational companies falling within the scope of the EWC Directive.
Some of those multinational companies have installed EWCs at a division level. Therefore the total number of European Works Councils is bigger than the number of Multinational companies that have an EWC.
