To support Works Councils in preparing the Works Council rules of procedure, the SER has created a Model Rules of Procedure. This has been updated and is now ready for use.
As an employee, you have a say in how things are arranged or decided within the organisation. The Works Council Act (WOR) lays down how this happens, for example through a PVT, (joint) Works Council, OC, COR or GOR. But what do all these abbreviations actually mean? Here is a brief explanation.
SER – the SER’s Model Rules of Procedure has been updated. This supports Works Councils in the drafting of their Works Council rules of procedure.
Works Council training stopped being training years ago. At least, it is not training in the same way that you receive training or are trained in many other areas. Works Councils are not (or no longer) trained in how to be a ‘good Works Council’. What we call Works Council training nowadays is actually much more discovering what you want to achieve.

The SER has set the guideline amount for OR training courses for 2021. The SER believes that €1065 per daily period is reasonable for OR training.
