Aviation in the spotlight at European Works Council seminar in Madrid

9 Mar 2019

On 8 March 2018 the first sectorial Seminar on the project EWCs in Transport: more and better participation now! took place in Madrid.

The seminar addressed the specific challenges of civil aviation companies when it comes to the creation and operation of European Works’ Councils. ETF affiliates showed interest in addressing a number of companies that meet the requirements for the creation of a new EWC.

During the seminar, the participants had the opportunity to get an extended information on the functioning of an EWC, and the potential of it both in terms of its formal role but also as an opportunity to strengthen links between trade unions representatives from different countries.

The participants also joined the Women’s March organised by the Spanish trade unions in Madrid.
