A collective agreement, collective agreement (CLA) or collective agreement (CLA) is a written contract negotiated by one or more unions with the management of a company (or employers` organisation) that governs workers` working conditions. This includes regulating workers` wages, benefits and obligations, as well as the obligations and responsibilities of the employer or employer, and often involves rules relating to the dispute settlement procedure. British law reflects the historical contradictory nature of British industrial relations. In addition, workers are concerned that if their union is prosecuted for violating a collective agreement, the union could go bankrupt, allowing workers to remain in collective bargaining without representation. Alternatively, the union may call for a strike vote.
