About us

For more than 20 years we are providing guidance and support to European Works Councils and employee representatives of multinational companies. We do believe in the fundamental employee’s rights of participation in the age of globalization. Many European Works Councils do trust in our experience and have chosen us as their experts and advisors. Amongst our clients are: British Airways, DHL, Oracle, Areva, TUI or Deutsche Telekom.

Since the early days Hellmut Gohde is involved in training and advice for European Works Councils and international industrial relations. He started work as academic staff at Hildesheim University. In 1994 he was appointed as the European Works Council Officer at the ETUC´s training institute in Brussels. Having returned to Germany he established his own agency.

TCI specialists work as experts for an increasing number of EWC´s including British Airways and Deutsche Post DHL. Our advisors were elected as experts in a significant number of companies to assist employee representatives in the negotiation of EWC agreements. Together with partners from all over Europe TCI is operating an high profile network of international specialists.
