However, there are circumstances in which both parties benefit from the security afforded by a renewal agreement. The law encourages unions to enter into contractual renewal agreements. The NLRB has decided that the status quo requirement does not apply to the provisions of the expired contract arbitration. For example, a union may wish for a renewal contract so that it can arbitrate violations that may occur during collective bargaining. However, even in the absence of a renewal contract, the parties may apply the terms of the contract expired by unfair labour practices. However, there are several reasons why we want to make every reasonable effort to conclude a new collective agreement: there is no doubt that the jurisprudence in collective bargaining will be a clear “communication to skippers” after the denunciation of a collective agreement that has lost its temporary validity. The shadow of the non-classification of working conditions and the application of a higher agreement, with more harmful hours and wages, will encourage negotiations for an agreement that will ensure the continuity of the agreement reached and avoid the application of the higher agreement if it is less advantageous for workers. If you have any questions about this or other questions regarding our ongoing collective bargaining, please contact the negotiating team Dr. Dan O`Donnell ( or Dr. Paul Hayes ( The central question of the proceedings was whether compensation for objective dismissals (1-7-2015) should be declared appropriate, according to the wage conditions of a collective agreement (Bizkaia`s province of offices and shipping offices) whose validity had expired, or in accordance with the collective agreement applicable at a higher level (public market advisory companies).

We triggered it when we issued our various notices of agreement in the early spring (that`s why we published two good deals, although we were waiting for the Labour Council to decide on our assertion that there is only one collective agreement: by issuing the good business notices, we made sure that the transition rules came into effect, regardless of how the board governs; Before the union can enter into collective bargaining, it must be certified by the Labour Council. In a short period of time after the certification is received, the union will begin collective bargaining (or negotiations) with the employer. The aim of the negotiations is to reach agreement on the many issues that can be included in the agreement. Until recently, there was a more compelling reason for unions to extend their collective agreement. Until 2012, the NRLB had decided for more than 50 years that an employer should not comply with the provisions for controlling the expiry of a expired collective agreement. The result of this decision was that in the absence of an extension agreement, a union could be financially paralyzed by an employer who simply decided not to pay taxes to the union.
