Collective Agreement Cao


A fixed-term contract has a start date and an end date. The contract expires on the agreed date, with the employer informing you in writing at least one month before the end date if the contract is renewed. We strongly recommend that you ensure that you receive a contract in writing, although an oral agreement is also valid in the Netherlands. The employer is obliged to inform you in writing of the main elements of the contract within one month of the start of the contract. Within the legal limits, both employers and workers are free to decide what is covered by the contract. The collective agreement (CA) in metal and Electronical Industries is a written agreement that regulates working conditions such as working hours, wages, bonuses, overtime pay, trial and notice periods as well as pensions. If you run a business in the Netherlands, you may need to work with a collective agreement (CAO). CAOs are collective agreements between employers (or employers` organizations) and trade unions on wages and other terms and conditions of employment. A probation period is a common part of a fixed-term contract with an employer. The trial period applies to both parties and must be agreed in writing. If the duration of the fixed-term contract is less than two years, the maximum trial period is one month. Exceptions can only be granted if there is a collective collection agreement.

The maximum legal trial period for a contract of indefinite duration or a fixed-term contract of two years or more is two months, with no possibility of renewal. Fixed-term contracts of six months or less cannot have probation periods. A probation period is not valid, even if the employee performs work that he or she has previously done elsewhere in the company. You may be dismissed during your trial phase. Your employer does not need to give a reason. You also have the right to resign during the trial period without notice or declaration, as the trial period goes both ways. In the Common Law, Ford v A.U.E.F. [1969],[8] the courts once ruled that collective agreements were not binding. Second, the Industrial Relations Act of 1971, introduced by Robert Carr (Minister of Labour in Edward Heath`s cabinet), provided that collective agreements were binding, unless a written contractual clause explained otherwise. After the death of the Heath government, the law was rescinded to reflect the tradition of the UK`s labour relations policy of legally refraining from workplace disputes. 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. Last Friday, 5 June, the social partners met definitively for the UN-CAO. . . .
