In accordance with national laws and dissent, measures should be taken to allow voluntary negotiations between company representatives and workers` representatives on the regulation of wages and conditions of employment through collective agreements.  Some collective agreements refer to the general relationship between an employer or employer organization and trade unions. These agreements generally address issues such as participation, negotiation procedures and the definition of common objectives related to future labour market developments and employers.

Although the collective agreement itself is not applicable, many of the negotiated terms relate to wages, conditions, leave, pensions, etc.
