Czech Republic: development of collectively agreed working conditions 1993–2011

EF/12/88/EN



This report focuses on the main issues and trends in collective agreements recorded in the Working Conditions Information System survey since 1993. It shows a decreasing emphasis on wage bargaining, especially in the context of the global economic slowdown, and a shift towards other issues such as trade union operation, the provision of information to and consultation with unions, severance pay and employee participation. There has been an increasing number of collective agreements establishing obligatory employer contributions to employees’ pension schemes, and more agreements addressing such issues as fair treatment in the workplace and parental leave.
