New co-determination structure
The modified governance with a director NWO-I was also a reason for COR NWO to review the co-determination structure within NWO. Together with the Executive Board representatives and the local works councils, we have decided that an adjustment needs to be made. We will further elaborate this idea in the coming months. The local institute works councils and COR NWO will in any case continue to exist. However, a works council at NWO-I level will be added so that the distinction will become clearer between NWO-I subjects (for which director NWO-I Miriam Luizink is responsible) and subjects that play a role for the entire NWO organisation (under the responsibility of the NWO Executive Board).
Consequences of the coronavirus
COR NWO regularly discusses the consequences of the coronavirus. For example, COR NWO is discussing the continuation of the temporary Implementing Regulation Commuting expenses with the Executive Board representative. We have also discussed a remuneration for working from home and a one-off compensation for the most recent period of working from home. We are also participating in the workgroup “hybrid working”. This workgroup will provide preliminary suggestions for the NWO policy concerning working from home in the period after the coronavirus.
