Bermuda Government Collective Bargaining Agreement
In general, a trade union has the right to be registered as such, it has the right to receive members and collect union dues, it has the right to own, to sue and to be sued and, in general, to manage business in the normal course. In the context of collective bargaining, a trade union has the important right to initiate redress procedures and to represent workers in relation to such complaints. After the union has been certified as a negotiator, your employer is legally required to bargain with the union for collective bargaining purposes in “good faith”. That is, wages, working time and other working conditions. No, although some collective agreements provide for a common consultation process regarding certain conditions of work and employment. . . .
