A collective agreement is an agreement between a trade union and an employers’ association on minimum working conditions.
Both sides, the employer and the employee, have rights and obligations during and after the employment relationship
Cooperation is a procedure between an employer and employee that addresses issues related to employee’s rights and obligations.
Starting from the autumn 2021 we will negotiate new collective agreements for our members. Our aims are higher pay, more equal working life and for better support for the well-being of employees. We also want to improve the conditions for local agreements.
Knowing which collective agreement is applied to your work is important, since collective agreements define the minimum terms of your work. It's also good to check how your pay is determined and what are your working hours and tasks at work. If possible, avoid signing a zero-hour contract..
