Abstract Employee participation is realized by committees in Turkey, like annual vacation committee, occupational health and safety committee, workplace closing or stopping production commission and workplace health and safety units structured with working legislation; and also the committees and boards like workplace disciplinary board, damage detection committee, industrial relations committee and conflict resolution committee structured with labour unions and collective bargaining. As today,there is a limited single-tier or unitary board employee participation system through trade unions in Turkey. In the absence of a bipartite employee participation system which exist in the EU member states collective bargaining seems to have served as a only platform for a limited participation of in Turkey.
