The extention of collective agreements in the workplace
By Alex Davies
Johanette Rheeder Incorporated
Collective agreements are entered into by parties in employment relationships on a regular basis, for a variety of reasons and in a variety of ways. Common types of collective agreements are recognition agreements or wage agreements, however there are others that exist as well.
Many large employers engage in collective bargaining with the representative unions in their organisation, this may be done on a centralised basis or at a specific level in the organisation, it may even be done through a mixture of both ways with certain terms and conditions determined at centralised bargaining and other terms and conditions determined at the level of an individual part of the organisation.
The Labour Relations Act (LRA), 66 of 1995, endorses the principle of majoritarianism. It provides for the extension of collective agreements concluded between an employer and representatives (unions) acting on behalf of the majority of the workers in the workplace, to the rest of the employees in the workplace.
