Case Description In January 2014, an Austrian trade union submitted a case to the Austrian NCP concerning violations of Chapter V Employment and Industrial Relations by a Multinational Enterprise operating in Austria. The trade union withdrew the case before the NCP conducted its Initial Assessment because it had reached an agreement with the MNE on a 5 year social plan. The NCP accordingly closed the specific instance.
