Among other things, this means that there will be a joint meeting in the European Works Council once a year. This year’s joint meeting will take place in March.

Its purpose is to raise issues, to inform, and to discuss questions of a more strategic nature for both Hydro as a company and for each of the business areas. Svein Richard Brandtzæg and Torstein Dale Sjøtveit, who head up the two business areas Aluminium Products and Aluminium Metal respectively, will participate in the meeting.
