Although the collective agreement itself is not applicable, many of the negotiated conditions relate to wages, conditions, leave, pensions, etc. These conditions are included in an employee`s employment contract (whether or not the worker is a member of the union); and the employment contract is of course applicable. If the new conditions are not acceptable to individuals, they may contradict their employer; but if the majority of workers have agreed, the company will be able to dismiss the plaintiffs, normally with impunity. You can write your own apprenticeship contract or upload a training contract template. When collective bargaining leads to an agreement, such as an increase in wages or a change in working conditions, it is called a “collective agreement”. The United States recognizes collective agreements.
