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.
