company council

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A popular term for a consultative committee, in which elected representatives of employees meet managers to discuss aspects of HRM and business policy. A key feature of company councils in the UK is that, although trade unions may have representatives on the council, they have no monopoly of representation and union and non-union representatives sit down together. [See single-union agreement.]

Subjects: Human Resource Management.
