Luxembourg -Employers against planned labour reform -May 08, 2013

Employers’ organisation UEL wants the government to withdraw current plans for a reform of staff representation under a new labour law. According to the UEL the law would not lead to a better representation of staff and improved dialogue between employees and employers. Instead, it would give unions increased powers within businesses. The reform foresees a restructuring of staff delegations, such as the abolition of the joint works council, which brings together workers and employer representatives. The staff delegation, which does not include the employer, would get more power and more members, which will be able to get more paid hours of leave to fulfil their duties representing staff. The possibility for staff delegations to invite external consultants, including unionists, at the company's expense would increase.
