The workshop council – for questions, complaints and wishes
The workshop council, in the sense of workshops co-regulation (Werkstätten-
Mitwirkungsverordnung WMVO) is figurehead and advocacy for people with disabilities in workshops and therefore gets the opportunity to be involved in the workshop management and to participate in decision making. A central task of the workshop council is to gather advices, questions, complaints and requests from employees (of the workshop) in an atmosphere of trust and to process them jointly with the Head of the Workshop.
To be able to perform their duties within the workshop Council in a responsible and competent manner, the members of the Workshop Council have the opportunity to participate in a continuous training lasting several days.
