Last point: social partners should be aware of whether or not there is an “undue” clause in their collective agreement of expiry, a provision that automatically extends the collective agreement if the termination is not made in time. Failure to denounce such a contract would see negotiations on the terms of an estate agreement. Under our old bargaining system, this was really not a problem, as our terms had no expiry date and we were obliged to present a deadlock in the negotiations on economic benefits to a final offer selection arbitrator (FOS). Our timetable for negotiations under this old system was that we could do things before the treaty expired. Although we have missed that deadline from time to time, we have never been more than a month or two behind schedule. Wage differences were dealt with retroactively. If you have any questions about this or other questions regarding our ongoing collective bargaining, please contact the negotiating team Dr. Dan O`Donnell (email@example.com) or Dr. Paul Hayes (firstname.lastname@example.org). The central question of the proceedings was whether compensation for objective dismissals (1-7-2015) should be declared appropriate, according to the wage conditions of a collective agreement (Bizkaia`s province of offices and shipping offices) whose validity had expired, or in accordance with the collective agreement applicable at a higher level (public market advisory companies). When a contract expires, do you lose all your rights and obligations immediately? Collective agreements are different from ordinary agreements.
As soon as a model trade agreement expires, unless otherwise stated, the parties have no other obligations. This is not the case with collective agreements. Although its terms have expired in law, the parties to a collective agreement remain bound to the status quo ante, the terms set by the contract over the life. These terms of employment can only be changed in good faith during negotiations if the parties have negotiated a new agreement or are in a deadlock, which is a mutual awareness that it is not possible to reach an agreement. c.- Improvements in working conditions in “ad personam” employment contracts (essentially annual wages) are maintained at a higher level despite the new application of the collective agreement. Until recently, there was a more compelling reason for unions to extend their collective agreement.
