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.

Works/university/faculty council

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.
