Collective Agreements During Covid
You may not see a force majeure clause in your high school, but we assume that this provision will be another prominent candidate for the superlative, which will be „most likely brought to the negotiating table“ during post-pandemic negotiations. Many of these issues are likely to be related to the current COVID-19 pandemic, especially as UK businesses plan to resume operations if restrictions are lifted. Staff engagement will be critical to ensuring a safe and successful return to work. Employers with collective agreements are therefore encouraged to use these agreements to consult with workers on their reintegration plans. As in other legal systems, video or telephone consultations are currently highly recommended instead of personal meetings. This report examines the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the workforce and our economy, discusses the importance of trade unions and collective action by workers in creating a fair economy and a fair labour market, and recommends policy reforms to promote collective workers` power and increase union density. There is already broad political support for many of these important reforms, including the Law on the Protection of the Right to Organise (PRO), which passed through the House of Representatives earlier this year. . . .
