Europe Europe
The European Commission has carried out a "fitness check" on the collective redundancies Directive, the transfers of undertakings Directive and the Directive establishing a general framework relating to information and consultation of workers.

This issue could be discussed within the sectoral social dialogue committee which brings together central government administrations."
