What is a Works Council?

A Works Council in the Netherlands is:

  • an internal body of a company representing employees,
  • has consultation rights in respect of certain significant proposed management decisions,
  • and has approval rights in respects of intended decisions regarding certain employment policies.

The Works Council of the Faculty of Science at the University of Amsterdam has 15 seats. I am the Chair of the 2018-2021 Faculty of Science Works Council. If you want to know more, you can have a look at this presentation on What is the Faculty of Science Works Council, which I gave early 2019.
