Employees' consultative body

Employees' consultative bodies are employee participation bodies of Utrecht University and function like works councils. They consist of elected staff representatives. The powers of the employees' consultative bodies are similar to those of the staff section in the Faculty Council. Members of the employees' consultative body are elected for a two-year term, starting on 1 September.

The service councils advise the management of the relevant service, and have the right of consent on certain issues. Important topics for the employees' consultative body are:

  • working and service conditions;
  • general staff policy;
  • safety, health and welfare in relation to work;
  • organisation and working methods;
  • organisational changes (including reorganisations);
  • technical and economic service performance.

The meetings are normally open to the public, except for subjects that require confidentiality. You are always welcome to attend the meetings as an observer. It is advisable to register in advance with the employees' consultative body, so that you are informed in a timely manner of any changes in time or location, and so that you can receive the link in case of an online meeting. Check the documents of the meetings on the teamsite of the employee and student representation. Information on the seperate employees's consultative bodies can be obtained from the contact persons listed below.
