Collective Bargaining

Collective bargaining means workers' organizations and employers' organizations negotiating terms and conditions of employment, regulating relations between workes and employers or their organizations. The right to collective bargaining goes hand in hand with freedom of association. When workes and employers and their representatives have these meetings, they can discuss issues such as salary, health and safety, general working conditions and any other issue of mutual concern. The collective bargaining process can involve sharing information and concerns, consultation, assessing working conditions and discussing the terms under which employers and employees work together.
