What is a National Collective Bargaining Agreement?

A National Collective Bargaining Agreement is an agreement signed by a trade union of employees and a group of employers. This agreement lays down a certain number of rules determining the working conditions of employees: days of leave, organization of working hours, levels of health and death & disability insurance coverage, training, conditions for terminating the employment contract, etc.
A Collective Bargaining Agreement therefore contains the rules applicable to all companies covered by that agreement. All companies are covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement depending on its business sector and/or its geographical location. Each National Collective Bargaining Agreement is given its own number: this is known as the IDCC ID.

How to find out which National Collective Bargaining Agreement applies to your company

In particular, this will be the activity where you generate the most turnover and/or the activity where your wage bill is the highest.
