Collective Agreements
Collective Agreements
Our premier guide provides information on collective agreements, content, coverage, union and non-union members.
Collective agreements are employment agreements between one or more employers and one or more
unions; multi-employer collective agreements, known as MECA’s, are collective agreements between
one union (which represents members employed by a multiple of employers in the same or similar
industries) and a multiple of employers who all do the same type of work.
Collective agreements are a feature of the Employment Relations Act 2000. Collective agreements
must be bargained for, ratified, and operated according to the Act. This guide covers the operation of
collective agreements including what they must contain and how they can be enforced.
