A collective agreement is an agreement or arrangement between an employer or employers' association and one or more trade unions. Often it will go beyond pay, hours and holidays and cover wider terms and other matters such as recruitment, discipline and grievances, facilities and trade union representatives’ rights.
It is not legally binding as between the parties unless in writing and stated to be so, although it may have binding consequences as between an employee and an employer if it is incorporated into the employee’s contract.
