Employee participation (Works Council)
Employee participation in decision-making is organised in two ways at Dutch universities. Universities have either a works council, or a university council with faculty councils. Every university also conducts periodic meetings between trade unions and the university within their local consultative committee.
Do you want to represent other employees, deliberate and advise on important developments at the university? As a university employee, you can stand for election to the works council, the university council or faculty council.
