On 29 August, in a joint letter, BUSINESSEUROPE, UEAPME, CEEP and ETUC
agreed to take the Commission’s 2 July proposal for a directive on European works
councils (recast) as the basis for the revision of the 1994 directive.

In order to realise the revision of the Directive in 2008 or early in 2009, the European
social partners call on the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers to take
their joint amendments into consideration in the adoption process.

The European social partners will inform their members about the extended
possibilities offered by the revised Directive.
