SER to report on worker policy role

The cabinet has asked its social and economic policy advisory body SER to look at giving workers more say over corporate policy.

Finance minister Wouter Bos said this could include, for example, allowing the works council to have more say in the appointment of top level staff.
Bos also told MPs the cabinet would reduce the size of shareholdings which have to be registered from 5% to 3% in line with recommendations made by the Frijns committee last month. Activist shareholders will also be required to make their intentions known at an earlier stage.
