Make a request
Write to your employer to ask them to set up a European Works Council (EWC).
It must be backed by at least 100 employees from at least 2 European Economic Area (EEA) sites.
Send it to the central or local management of the business.
Your employer can challenge your request for an EWC if:
- they think the request isn't valid, eg because the business doesn't employ enough people
- there's an existing information and consultation agreement
