Question: What are the topics that can be covered by collective bargaining? The BCAs found in this database were transmitted by the executive services and agencies to the OPM. This database is based on information provided by the executive services and agencies to the OPMs and may not contain all existing BCAs within the executive. OPM will regularly update this database as soon as existing and new BCAs are made available. The rules and procedures described in this Decree will be applied by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (STPS) as soon as the Federal Laboratory Conciliation and Registration Centre (FCCLR) can take up its duties. These provisions are intended to ensure the legitimacy of existing collective agreements (BCAs) and are therefore independent of those that apply to the submission and revision of BCAs. Answer: Yes. Collective bargaining concerns the definition of working conditions, including restructuring. The specific conditions of a collective agreement fall within the competence of the negotiating parties. It is customary to include in the debate provisions on consultation procedures, the provision of information and the involvement of employees and their representatives when an undertaking envisages a change which could affect workers, their conditions of employment or their employment in general. Question: Does the inclusion of employee representatives in the restructuring/sale processes of companies fall within the scope of collective agreements? Question: Is there an ILO convention on whether the trade union rights of a collective agreement remain in force for a certain period of time when a company is closed, sold or privatized? Answer: Collective bargaining is a constructive forum for dealing with working conditions and conditions of employment, as well as relations between employers and employees or their respective organizations. It is often more efficient and flexible than state regulation. It can help to anticipate potential problems and promote peaceful mechanisms to deal with them; and to find solutions that take into account the priorities and needs of employers and workers. .
