The article reports the provisions of a proposed amendment to the European Works Council (EWC) directive of the European Commission. The proposed amendment would allow existing agreements to be revised when there is a change of structure in the organization, such as merger. It could force organizations within its scope to meet employee demands to set up an EWC and would restrict EWC from dealing with questions other than those that are transnational.
