collective labor agreement

collective labor agreement
An agreement, sometimes known as a "collective bargaining agreement" or "trade agreement," reached by bargaining as to wages and conditions of work, entered into by groups of employees, usually organized into a union or brotherhood, on one side, and an employer or groups of employers on the other side. Anno: 88 L Ed 776; 31 Am J Rev ed Lab § 90. A contract between the employer and the employees acting through the agency of the representative organization or group. 31 Am J Rev ed Lab § 91. It is not the equivalent of an individual contract of employment between the employer and each employee, but an agreement between the representative organization and employer laying down certain conditions of employment which, it is contemplated, are to be incorporated in the separate contracts of hiring with each employee. MacKay v Loew's, Inc. (CA9 Cal) 182 F2d 170, 18 ALR2d 348. Such an agreement may be a brief statement of labor and wages, or, on the other hand, it may take the form of a book or an exhaustive pamphlet regulating, in greatest minuteness, every condition under which labor is to be performed, and touching upon such subjects as strikes, lockouts, walkouts, seniority, apprentices, shop conditions, safety devices, and group insurance. Rentschler N Missouri Pacific R. R. Co. 126 Neb 493, 253 NW 694, 95 ALR 1.
