TSUE: The employer is obliged to consult with the trade union

The Court of Justice in its judgment of 21 September 2017 in Case C-149/16 ruled that an employer who intends to modify the essential conditions of employment for the remuneration of many workers, should apply the rules for collective redundancies.

This means that the employer is obliged to consult his intention with the trade union. The case concerned three hospital workers who were given a notice changing employment or remuneration conditions regarding changing the rules for calculating the periods of employment entitling to obtain rights to jubilee award.
