It is important to raise awareness of the significance of employee representatives’ role in companies not only in EU Members but also in countries that are in any stage of EU accession process.
WIM3 project activities will be switched from generally informative to concrete ones. Namely, the experiment in pilot companies will be implemented. This will add value and introduce actual benefits of the employee participation in decision making processes. Activities and results will refer to all relevant stakeholders – governments, employers and trade unions, not only in countries, where the experiment will be implemented (Macedonia, Montenegro), but also in other EU Candidates and potential Candidates.
Transfer of know-how and experience will help actors at company level to better involve employees in positive decision management of change in this region.
Slovenia, Bulgaria and Croatia have successfully implemented employee involvement in undertakings model into national lаw. However, In WIM3 an online survey will be made among employers to obtain sufficient information on the state of play of employee involvement and thus to obtain an overview of the adequacy of national legislation. Recommendations for improvements of national law in respective countries will be prepared, as well as necessary steps for a modernisation of labour market to facilitate the creation of more and better jobs and promote the competitiveness of the economy. Common opinion on adequacy of EU acts in the area of Information and Consultation of Workers will be prepared as well.
