Prevent Employees From Going On Strikes With Collective Agreement
The most significant responsibility for NetworkBD is to negotiate a collective agreement for private service industries. Collective agreements define the minimum terms and conditions of employment, including pay, working hours, sick pay, and compensation for public holidays. They lay out the minimal terms and conditions that every employer must, at the very least, apply to all of its employees.
An agreement or arrangement between one or more trade unions and an employer or employers’ association. A collective bargaining agreement may encompass terms and conditions of employment and work, hiring, firing, and suspension, work allocation, punishment, union membership, union recognition, facility agreements, processes, and other collective bargaining machinery.
Reduce Abusive The Employees Power with Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA)
Employees who would not ordinarily have the means or courage to fight for their rights if they were not members of a trade union will have individuals who will battle employers who take advantage of their workers in collective bargaining. Supporters of collective bargaining argue that employees have a higher chance of being fairly compensated or of leaving their positions without fear of being sued or losing their income.
A Collective Agreement is a notice sent to the other party. In Bangladesh, for example, this agreement must be issued once the employer or trade union has begun a collective bargaining process. The party who wishes to begin negotiations will issue the agreement.
The Collective Agreement is essentially a contract between the employer and the trade union, which will act on behalf of the employees. This agreement is valid for a minimum of two years. It has a maximum lifespan of three years. After one person has signed the document, you should receive certification within a week of the signing date.
The 9 key lessons for parties entering a collective bargaining process are summarized as follows:
- 1. It is critical to have a well-informed and knowledgeable Union Executive Committee.
- 2. The workers’ requirements must be fully comprehended.
- 3. It is necessary to establish a strong working relationship with management.
- 4. It is necessary to plan the timing.
- 5. All discussions must be recorded in writing.
- 6. Every line of an agreement must be written clearly and double-checked. It is not advisable to rush signatures.
- 7. It’s possible that the procedure will take some time.
- Though behavior is critical, and a focus on solutions is essential, it should not be prolonged unnecessarily.
Know More About Regulating Authority Actions with Network BD
In Bangladesh, the relationship between an employer and the employee is regulated by an act. Specifically, the Industrial Relations Act. The act helps with the settlement and prevention of trade disputes.
According to the Bangladesh Labor Act (BLA) 2006 Sec 2(62) Industrial disputes means the dispute arising of appointing or not appointing person or service condition or work conditions or environment between the owner and the worker or among the workers. The causes of industrial disputes can be broadly classified into two categories: economic and non-economic causes.
Wages, bonuses, allowances, and working conditions, as well as working hours, leave and unpaid holidays, and unjust layoffs and retrenchments, will be among the economic causes. Non-economic factors will include worker victimization, poor treatment by coworkers, sympathetic strikes, political factors, and indiscipline, among others.
The following are 4 methods used to resolve these conflicts:
- 1. Collective bargaining
- 2. Arbitration
- 3. Conciliation
- 4. Mediation
The receiving party must accept the agreement once it has been sent. Acceptance signals the start of the negotiation process. Negotiations between the employer and the trade union should begin as soon as possible.

All Employers Can Get Benefited From Collective Bargaining Agreement
By providing employers with an authorized and represented partner with whom to negotiate, the agreement sets channels for resolving issues at both the factory and sectoral levels. These measures are expected to limit the occurrence of industrial action such as strikes.
These conditions will give the sector a boost by generating a more positive working environment and labor harmony, which will enhance morale and production. The deal gives employers more consistency in areas like wages, bonuses, and working hours, allowing them to plan ahead more effectively.
In the event of a conflict, such as a strike, the agreement provides the employers with a partner to turn to. The union is now dedicated to finding a solution to these problems.
Both employees’ and employers’ interests can be better served through conversation, bargaining, and union-management committees.
