Recognition Agreement Between Employer And Trade Union

The purpose of this letter is to obtain the union`s agreement on the organization`s request for de-accounting. If a union can prove that its members represent the majority of all workers in the workplace, the union has a final right to recognition. In other words, it is entitled to organizing rights under the LRA. Both parties agree to negotiate all issues related to the agreed issues and reach an agreement (examples below). The employer should never include what is a management prerogative. The employer should not hand over management to the union. Status quo: In the event of disputes that cannot be resolved, any practice or agreement that existed before the difference will continue to function as part of the dispute resolution process. Both parties are the spirit and intent that there should be no unwarranted or disproportionate delay in dealing with issues in the agreed procedure. If a union addresses an employer for organizational reasons, the parties must meet to enter into a collective agreement. If such a meeting does not result in an agreement, the union is required to refer the dispute to the CCMA. A union asked me to enter into a recognition agreement with them.

The union feels that it has the right to be recognized in my company because it represents a number of workers. Do I have to talk to the union? This letter indicates to the union that the Central Arbitration Commission has been asked to determine the bargaining unit. If one party is trying to change one aspect of the agreement or current working methods, that party must communicate in writing to the other party x (date) of its obligation to discuss the amendment; unless both parties agree to these changes on that date. This letter is intended to respond to a request for recognition from a union. A union will successfully obtain recognition in the workplace if it can prove to the employer or the CCMA that it is sufficiently represented among the workers. The question is what is sufficient representation. In the event that such a notification is made or received, the company will hold a advisory meeting between the authorized company representatives and the representatives of the staff/shop stewards. The full-time union delegate may request that he attend such a meeting and the company cannot refuse such a request in an unseemly manner. If a union does not have a majority, but simply becomes “sufficiently representative”, it is only entitled to access to work, the deduction of union dues and leave for union policy activities. The concept of “sufficiently representative union” is not defined by the LRA, leaving it to the CCMA arbitrators to decide whether the union is sufficiently representative or not.

Shop Stewards have several union obligations that they can withdraw from their normal production work. These tasks include: this letter informs a union that, despite its correspondence, the organization is not aware of a prior recognition agreement. This is why the organization will not engage in discussions on collective bargaining or union actions. The recognition agreement between employers and a union outlines issues that cover collective bargaining and how collective bargaining takes place.
