Abstract

This article analyses European Works Councils (EWCs) as constellations of interest groups that have to struggle if they are to create cohesion and coherent identities. Cultural and linguistic barriers are problems not only of communication, but as power relationships that reinforce inclusiveness or exclusion. Drawing on data derived from their direct involvement with training for EWCs, the authors argue that sensitivity to issues of language and cross-cultural communication is a key factor in achieving success and effectiveness.
