Works Council

A chapter of a labor union representing the workers of a single company. The works council coordinates its activities with the larger union. In some countries, notably Germany, works councils have the authority to alter national labor agreements to fit the circumstances of their own company. In some countries, representatives of a works council sit on the board of directors of the corporation.
