What Are Collective Agreements

Equal pay provisions for work of equal value (comparable value) open up a wider area of challenge, but this strategy has proved difficult to implement. Historical bias in the assessment of “female” occupations has not been easy to eliminate, as even fairly detailed methods of job evaluation can maintain aspects of gender bias and, in fact, perpetuate existing hierarchies (Steinberg 1992). In addition, the cases have proven to be complex and time-consuming. However, the comparable value allows for a review of the assessment of work and is particularly important given the clear resistance of occupational segregation patterns to change. It will be most effective when the margin of comparison is wide and the results will collectively apply to the types of jobs and not to individuals. Collective agreements are used to supplement legislation or to negotiate scope-specific contracts. The main principle is that collective agreements cannot contain terms that are less than the statutory requirements. The rules mentioned in collective agreements most often concern working hours. These issues include, for example, systems for balancing shift work time, shift work pay and days off. The United States recognizes collective agreements[9] [10] [11] Although the collective agreement itself is not applicable, many of the negotiated terms relate to wages, conditions, leave, pensions, etc.

These conditions are included in a worker`s employment contract (whether the worker is unionized or not); and the employment contract is of course applicable. If the new conditions are not acceptable to individuals, they may be contrary to their employer; but if the majority of workers have agreed, the company will be able to dismiss the complainants, usually unpunished. The potential of workers to be affected by different regulatory flows makes the current allocation difficult to calculate; For example, part of their compensation and terms can be paid by bonuses and some of it can be settled by another form of agreements. Table 4.2 contains some indications. It suggests that the proportion of workers who paid exactly the premium quota in 2006 was relatively low – 19%.5 What were the main alternatives to rewards? The category of registered individual agreements, particularly federal ACCORDS, was small (3.1 per cent). An important category consisted of unregistered individual contracts covering 31.7% of employees, but it should be a heterogeneous group composed of certain employees in an unregulated sector, mainly governed by national contracts, with certain employees whose wages are determined mainly by an increase or agreement, but who benefit from additional remuneration granted by their employer. , known as the Over-Award. We then registered collective agreements that represent 38.1% of employees.
