Fvrl Collective Agreement


The scope of the agreements, i.e. the range of topics covered, covers both individual employment relations and collective employment relations: topics related to individual contracts of employment, exercise of the right to organise in the enterprise, issues related to the pursuit of company policy, insofar as they have a direct impact on employment relations, the subjects dealt with by Law 1767/1988 of the n are subject to decision-making; and social security. The provisions of an agreement are subdivided into “normative” provisions with direct and mandatory application and “mandatory” provisions that govern the reciprocal rights and obligations of the parties and may entail an obligation of peace. In the current legal system, there are five types of collective agreements: the national whole, industry, enterprises, national professional contracts and local professional contracts, which are of varying application. Employers and/or trade unions that are not bound by an agreement may decide to accept it. Sectoral and company contracts may be renewed and made compulsory for all workers (see renewal of collective agreements). An agreement concluded as a result of negotiations between a trade union and an employer`s organization or a single employer for the purpose of defining the content of the employment relationship and regulating the relations between the parties. Before 1935, when the status of collective agreements was first governed by Greek law, both parties had signed protocols that were in force. Today, collective agreements are governed by the new Law 1876/1990, which replaced Law 3239/1955, but which is very different from the latter by focusing on the full recognition of the right to free collective bargaining, the decentralization of negotiations and the settlement of disputes without State intervention, which establishes the obligation to negotiate and expands the scope of collective agreements. Until recently, collective agreements played only a very limited role in determining conditions of employment in Greece, since their content was limited and their function was often fulfilled by arbitral awards (see arbitrations).

Collective agreements are signed by the most representative unions (see representativeness), are a source of labour law and, in some cases, apply directly to all employees, whether unionized or not. The big highlight marks changes from the previous collective agreement. COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT BETWEEN the Northern Workers` Union and the Minister responsible for the Public Service Act.
