The presence, composition and function of Joint Consultative Committees

This study uses data from the 2011 Workplace Employment Relations Study to build on and supplement the analysis concerning Joint Consultative Committees provided in the WERS sourcebook. The research places the findings in the context of wider research and recent trends and events; most notably the regulations covering Information and Consultation of Employees (ICE).

The research addresses critical questions concerning the incidence, composition, operation and impact of workplace and higher level JCCs, distinguishing between union only, non-union only and ‘hybrid’ JCCs. The paper focuses on workplaces which belong to organisations which have 50 or more employees – thus concentrating on those workplaces which are covered by ICE.
