As the examples cited above have shown, unionized workers, when they have a significant density within a sector, occupation, sector or employer, can overcome barriers to bargaining for a wider place and make substantial gains at the bargaining table with their employers – benefits that do not only benefit workers directly covered by the collective agreement, but also raise wages and set standards for non-unionized workers in the region. The following national reforms would strengthen workers` bargaining power and enable them to negotiate and set standards in their profession, sector or sector. Under existing legislation, workers and trade unions cannot insist that employers in their sector collaborate with the union or a group of trade unions on the basis of several employers.10 Workers and trade unions are obliged to adopt this employer approach, although it coordinates both negotiations within a sector or sector and prevents employers from: 18.104.22.168.2001, point 1.3.11 Local 32BJ The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) provides a convincing example of what workers and their unions can achieve if they have dense and dense bargaining power. The union, which represents workers in 12 states and Washington, D.C, is making significant profits for workers in the real estate services sector through a combination of multi-employer negotiations, group negotiations, bargaining framework contracts and identifying policy levers to facilitate negotiations. Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are at the heart of decent work. They are fundamental rights at work and are the basis for healthy labour relations and effective social dialogue. Data and indicators on trade union membership and the scope of collective agreements, as well as other qualitative indicators, are important for monitoring progress in the effective implementation of these rights in the workplace. Measuring these social dialogue indicators is also essential to assess the quality of labour relations and their impact on employment and working conditions. The right to bargain collectively with an employer enhances the human dignity, freedom and autonomy of workers by giving them the opportunity to influence the definition of employment rules and thus gain some control over an important aspect of their lives, namely their work. Collective bargaining is not only an instrument for achieving external objectives. on the contrary, [it] is valuable as experience in self-management per se. Collective bargaining enables workers to achieve a form of democracy at work and to guarantee the rule of law in the workplace.
