COR NWO

The Central Works Council of NWO (COR NWO) is made up of the GOR NWO-I and three representatives from the works council of NWO-D.

Together with the Executive Board representative, COR NWO works for the proper functioning of NWO and NWO-I in their entirety. We handle subjects such as the Implementing Regulations (IR), the introduction of the new job structure and governance.

How we do that is established in the Dutch Works Councils Act (WOR: Wet op Ondernemingsraden). Amongst other things, it states that the COR has the right to information as well as which instruments it has to realise its co-determining role properly. The most used instruments are:

  • Request for advice
    The Executive Board requests advice from the COR about a certain subject. This advice is not binding and the Executive Board can decide to ignore it. However, the COR can lodge an objection against a decision taken by the Executive Board at the Enterprise Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal. In practice, good consultation with the Executive Board often results in positive advice with which recommendations from the COR are adopted.
  • Request for consent
    The Executive Board requests consent from the COR for a certain intended decision. This request is an instrument that carries more weight. In the event of negative advice from the COR, the Executive Board must (temporarily) stop the intended plans and review these. With this instrument, the Executive Board and the COR also try to reach an agreement within the boundaries of reasonableness.
