1 Developing a Training Strategy for EWCs and SE-WCs CPC Working Group Training
2Ralf Götz EBR/SE- Team IG Metall Vorstand Training Strategy – What? First discussion in SWP Background: Providing Training for EWCs and SE-WCs is key for developing the bodies and to increase influence on policy by trade unions Latest with the new EWC directive the right of training is implemented Problem: no unity in this question among our organizations Private institutes, “experts” ….. move into this market for business reasons We are loosing ground and miss a golden opportunity And what trade union like the most: the employer has to pay!
3Ralf Götz EBR/SE- Team IG Metall Vorstand Training Strategy - Elements Three elements need to be taken into account when developing a training strategy for industriAll and their affiliates: Actors: who delivers or should deliver training to EWC’s and RB’s? Content: What content is needed in order to strengthen information and consulta tion rights in EWC’s/RB’s? In practice different needs are expressed in EWC’s that frequently organize training and those who are just starting to do this. The same can be said for individual EWC-members who can either be experienced or not. How can we use training as a tool to bring in our trade union agenda co ncerning certain topics (f.ex. Reach,…)? Division of tasks: who does what?!
