The collective agreement for hotel, restaurant and leisure workers sets minimum conditions for work in the sector, including remuneration, working allowances, working hours and holidays. The collective agreement, also known by the Finnish acronym TES, is a labour market partnership contract covering sectoral working conditions such as wage increases, working time, leave, holiday pay, worker representation, communication and other conditions applicable under the agreement. Collective agreements are generally sectoral and are linked to the employee`s professional position. Pro`s collective agreement guarantees fair rules of the contractual relationship and fair remuneration. Collective agreements also include decisions on working time and overtime pay. Trade Union Pro`s collective agreements include, for example, agreements on job difference, travel allowance, sickness benefits, maternity benefits, leave allowances and on-call allowances. The collective agreement is a key element of Finnish working life. In Finland, basic working conditions are regulated by law. However, collective agreements are used to create additional conditions that are not regulated by law. For example, annual salary increases, minimum wages, paid sick leave and vacation pay. Tariffs are part of the respective collective agreements. See the collective agreement for your own sector. Amendment of the new Working Time Act The collective agreement provides for amendments to the new Working Time Act by changing the reference period for working time to 12 months.
Collective agreements are used to supplement legislation or negotiate specific contracts. The main principle is that collective agreements must not contain conditions that are inferior to the conditions laid down by law. A large number of business school graduates also work in sectors where no YTN collective agreement is currently in effect. Among these sectors, you can get more detailed information about the collective agreement from your trusted man or from Pro`s employee council. . . .
