What is Collective Bargaining ?
‘Collective Bargaining’ is the term used to define the bargaining between employers and the employees to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. In most of these cases, the interests of the employee will be represented via a trade union while the employer might be represented by an association of companies.
Such kind of bargaining takes place to make sure that an industry-wide standard is set. It might also take place between employees of a single organization and its employees if there is something which the employees have been demanding and not fulfilled by the employer.
It is recognised as a human right in various countries and companies would be forced to recognize these demands if they are genuine, by the court of law. The needs might range from setting a basic wage to regulating salary scales, working hours, training regulations, etc.
