This chapter examines the law on agreements between employers and trade unions. It first explains the process of collective bargaining and the legal status of such agreements. It then considers the importance, both to the union and its members, of trade union recognition by employers. It examines the rights of trade unions to information and consultation, followed by a consideration of European works councils. Finally, some observations are made on the role of the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service and the Central Arbitration Committee.
