Board-level Representation

Employees are not represented at board level in Belgium, except in a handful of publicly-owned companies.

There is no system of board level representation in the private sector in Belgium. But there are employee representatives on the boards of a few state-owned companies, such as the Flemish public bus service company “De Lijn”, where two union officials, one from the CSC/ACV and one from the FGTB/ABVV, represent the interests of the employees. In addition, in 2008, a Belgian representative was elected onto the supervisory board of BASF SE, a European Company based in Germany
