3.Is the ratification of the KNA by the majority of bargaining unit workers? The CBA`s application for registration must be submitted to the regional office that issued the union party`s certificate of registration or Chartered Local creation certificate. Yes. Ratification of the CBA by bargaining unit employees is not required if the ABA is the result of an arbitration award by a competent governmental authority or a voluntary arbitrator. It is a contract concluded at the request of the employer or the exclusive representative of the workers and which contains the agreement concluded after negotiation with regard to wages, working time and any other employment arrangements, including proposals for the adaptation of complaints or issues within the framework of such an agreement. In particular, a CBA is a contract concluded taking into account agreements concluded after negotiation with the employer and the exclusive representative of the workers concerning wages, hours or work and all other working conditions. As such, a KNA includes both economic and non-economic provisions. Economic provisions include the cash value of wage increases, credit benefits, bonuses, allowances, pension plans and other ancillary benefits. On the other hand, non-economic clauses include union security clauses, complaint procedures, work-management cooperation programmes and other provisions of no monetary value. (c) a statement that the collective agreement has been ratified by a majority of the workers in the bargaining unit of the employer concerned.

The registration of collective agreements (ASAs) is closely monitored as an indicator of harmonious labour relations and peace at work in the country. A collective bargaining process is a process by which both parties, labour and management, agree to define and manage working and employment conditions that must not be below the minimum standards set by law and establish a mechanism for resolving the parties` complaints. Yes. The agreement negotiated by the workers` negotiator should be ratified or approved by the majority of workers in the bargaining unit. 4.Is an exception to the requirement of mandatory ratification by the majority of bargaining unit workers? The application for registration of the CBA will be processed within one day of receipt. CBA registration blurs a certification choice, except in the last sixty days (period of freedom) preceding the expiration of the five-year CBA. It concerns the last sixty days, just before the expiry of the five-year cost-benefit life. During the period of freedom, an application for choice of certification may be submitted. This is a process to determine whether the application for registration of a collective agreement complies with the registration rules of the CBA, in particular Rule XVII of the Order of the Department No.
