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. Section 15. Amendments and additions to a collective agreement. Amendments and additions to a collective agreement in force may be made only by mutual agreement between the parties and in accordance with the procedure laid down in the collective agreement itself or, in the absence of such a procedure, in accordance with the procedure laid down in this Law for the conclusion of such agreements. In view of the economic situation of the undertaking, the collective agreement may also contain other clauses, in particular those which offer workers more favourable working and socio-economic conditions than those laid down by legal and legislative standards and provisions (additional leave, pension supplements, early retirement, allowance for transport and mission expenses, free or reduced meals in the undertaking and for the children of workers in the company). (schools and before working time). B.B. schools and other types of benefits and allowances).
