This article highlights the absence of explicit reference to training for European works councillors in both the 1994 Directive and its transposed form in national legislation. Analysis of 'Article 13' voluntary agreements reveals a similar lack of attention to the issue. The authors examine the infrastructure of EWC training in Europe and highlight the significance of European Commission funding for transnational meetings in advance of the implementation of the Directive. The absence of a requirement in the Directive and a reduction in Commission funding will have implications for the organization and delivery of EWC training and ultimately for the effectiveness of multinational consultation and information procedures in the future.
