The structure put in place should guarantee a high degree of transparency and accountability to the contributors and at the same time monitor and assure that contributions due are paid. Therefore, the ETUC Executive Committee receives an annual activity report and a Board of Trustees has been established, made up of representatives of trade union organisations mainly concerned by the transfer of remuneration rule. The Board meets twice a year to discuss the proposals on how to utilise the resources of the EWPF.
