The union can negotiate with a single employer (who usually represents a company`s shareholder) or with a group of companies, depending on the country, in order to reach an industry-wide agreement. A collective agreement functions as an employment contract between an employer and one or more unions. Collective bargaining is conducted in negotiations between union representatives and employers (usually represented by management or, in some countries such as Austria, Sweden and the Netherlands, by an employers` organisation) on the conditions of employment of workers, such as wages, working time, working conditions, redress procedures and trade union rights and obligations. The parties often refer to the outcome of the collective agreement or collective agreement (AEC) negotiation. Section 6. Right to negotiations. Each of the parties has the right to take the initiative of collective bargaining to prepare, conclude or revise a collective agreement or agreement. Cases in paragraph 1 of this section are considered at the request of one of the parties to a collective agreement or a competent commission agreement or at the initiative of the Crown. Section 2. Basic concepts.

Together, management and workers are considered “social partners.”  Section 16.
