English term or phrase: work council
trade union is in the same sentence, can anyone help with the exact term/difference or give a synonym for syndicat?

comité d'entreprise
Explanation:
The comité d'entreprise has existed for years in France. It is now planned to have similar consultative bodies in the UK. This is what is called works councils in English. I believe it is to do with the so-called "Social Chapter" that the UK has signed up to in the European Union.

This is not the same as a trade(s) union, since these have existed for a long time in the UK.
