Collective bargaining is generally about concluding or negotiating with management an agreement that takes into account a large number of concerns in a given workplace. This type of contract is an employment contract and is often referred to as a „collective bargaining contract“ or CBA. Since then, there have been six subsetal agreements that since then have increased wages in the early years and introduced health insurance in subsequent years. Thus, the 2006 agreement included the extension of medical expenses after the career after the expiry of a player insurance. These agreements have largely gone from minimum wage requirements as a priority and to negotiations on wage caps. For example, the recent 2011 agreement included salary caps, free agency rules, rookie salaries and franchise tags. Concession negotiations are based on the fact that unions return previous benefits to the employer. For example, unions may agree on lower wages in exchange for job security. Mandatory Bargaining Issues Although the parties do not have to negotiate on all possible issues, they must negotiate in good faith binding bargaining issues, including wages, hours and other „conditions of employment“ (29 U.S.C.A. As these mandatory issues are very broad, the courts have tried over the years to establish standards to determine whether a particular topic of negotiation is mandatory. In general, the terms of employment cover only issues that „govern one aspect of the relationship between the employer and the workers“ (Allied Chemical – Alkali Workers of America v. Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co., 404 U.S. 157, 92 p.
Ct. 383, 30 L. Ed. 2d 341 ). Collective bargaining is the process in which a group of workers negotiates „collectively“ with the employer. This is usually the negotiation of wages, working conditions, benefits and other factors relating to the remuneration package and workers` rights. In 1968, the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) and the National Football League (NFL) reached their first collective bargaining agreement. The NFLPA was the first union of recognized players, and in 1968 they went on strike over wages and pensions. At this point, the unions will try to hold the employer to account and ensure that the agreement is implemented. Do workers, for example, receive the agreed minimum wage? Or did the company build the newly requested canteen on time and at an agreed quality? In June 2007, the Supreme Court of Canada examined in detail the reasons for respecting collective bargaining as a human right. In the case of the Facilities Subsector Bargaining Association/British Columbia, the Court found that we can also consider inclusive negotiations where both parties lose to win. For example, unions may be willing to forego annual bonuses in order to obtain a higher annual salary.
Otherwise, the union would accept a wage freeze to accept better working conditions. As a result, workers would lose as a result of lower real wages, while the employer would have to invest in better conditions. In other words, both sides are involved in integration negotiations, taking into account other points of view, needs, desires, fears and concerns. As a result, both parties lose or earn either the same amount.
