Terms Of The Collective Agreement

The United States recognizes collective agreements [9] [10] [11] In Finland, collective agreements are universal. This means that a collective agreement in a sector of activity becomes a universal legal minimum for everyone`s employment contract, whether unionized or not. For this condition to apply, half of the workers in this sector must be unionized and therefore support the agreement. Collective agreements ensure good remuneration and wage developments. It is an agreement on minimum wages and general wage increases, which form the basis of the wage system for office workers. In addition, you can negotiate your personal salary increases. In Sweden, around 90% of employees are covered by collective agreements and 83% in the private sector (2017). [5] [6] Collective agreements generally contain minimum wage provisions.
