What Is The Collective Agreement About

 
 

More detailed information about the collective agreement can be obtained from Shop Steward or pro employee council. In the event of a conflict, Pro members can get assistance from the Shop Steward and the Union staff council. Pro`s collective agreement guarantees a level playing field of contractual relationship and fair compensation. Unlike such restrictions, the law also provides for certain binding elements that a collective agreement must contain (Article 23, paragraph 1): the identity of the signatory parties, the extent and scope of their application, and the day they are signed. In addition, explicit pay levels for all occupations and categories need to be included in the pay scales (Article 23, paragraph 2). Collective agreements of form, registration and publication must be written; Otherwise, they are annular (Article 4, paragraph 1, Collective Labour Relations Act). They must also be registered and published with the Ministry of Employment and Social Security. Registration is made 15 days after this filing, unless the department has informed the parties of its formal refusal, as is only permitted for the reasons mentioned in the legislation. There is therefore some form of administrative control over certain requirements relating to the creation and content of collective agreements that work by refusing registration. However, since the law does not give administrative authorities discretion over compliance with legal requirements, the system is purely formal. Control of the legality of collective agreements is referred to the courts (Article 43).

After registration, the agreements must be published within a fortnight in the Boletim de Trabalho e Emprego (Article 26). This publication is essential at the beginning of its validity. There are provisions that are recorded in collective agreements that are not regulated by legislation. These issues include travel expenses, vacation bonuses, extra days off (called “pekkasvapaat”) or sick or maternity leave benefits.
