Dutch term or phrase: vertegenwoordigend overleg
Dit is een overlegorgaan van een bedrijf. Ik ben representative council wel tegengekomen, maar alleen in de context van studentenvertegenwoordigers in universiteiten. Aangezien het hier om een commercieel bedrijf gaat, vraag ik mij af of er een andere oplossing is.

consultative council


Explanation:
My feeling. Such organs do exist, and often included represenatives of both management and the labour unions, for enetrin consultations on problems, such as wages, strikes etc. It's a kind of non-binding consultative arrangement, that borders on, but is not arbitration.

I'd stick to 'representative council'.
