Bargaining Council Agreements

A Bargaining Council Agreement is the outcome of centralised collective bargaining under the Labour Relations Act.

A Bargaining Council Agreement sets out terms and conditions of employment for a particular industry in a particular area. The conditions in the collective agreement may be better for employees than those in the BCEA. Or employees may agree to conditions less favourable than the BCEA provided they do not affect certain core rights and the agreement is overly better for the employees concerned.

(See S49 of the BCEA).
