Collective Bargaining for Employment Conditions

Collective agreements aim to define the contractual employment relationship between the union and the employer in a given economic sector . They involve the participation of workers' representatives and employer’s representatives . The state can also be an important actor involved in the negotiations. Collective bargaining agreements can be of two types : 1. To replace multiple agreements signed at a company level without negatively affecting previous agreements. 2. To establish a minimum level of conditions that must be taken into account in all individual negotiations of the company, both for unionized workers and for those who are not part of any workers’ organization.
