What Can Be Agreed with a Collective Agreement?

Viimati uuendatud: 23.02.2017

The collective agreement enables to agree in almost all work matters. One should only emanate from the general agreement right principle that the agreement cannot pose obligations on parties who are not parties to the agreement (for example, an agreement concluded between the employer and trade union cannot pose obligations on employees who do not belong to the trade union).

In other aspects, there are basically no limitations. Parties may agree on remuneration, vacations, employees’ dismissal order, supplementary and in-service training possibilities, etc. Parties can also agree on questions related to the collective agreement itself, like the automatic extension of the collective agreement, order of amendment or organizing its’ execution supervision.

It should only be checked that the agreed conditions are not more unfavourable to the employee than stipulated by laws. Such agreements of the collective agreement are invalid.
