Where the construction employer is required to start negotiating, with whom should the negotiations begin?

Add Answer


The construction employer must, within three months, make arrangements for the employees to appoint or elect negotiating representatives. There are no pre-defined rules on how the representatives should be chosen, but construction employers must ensure that all employees employed in the undertaking can take part in the appointment or election of representatives and that all employees are represented during the negotiations. The construction employer should then inform the employees who has been elected or appointed and invite the representatives to negotiate. Negotiations may last up to six months, starting three months after the notification request was made. This period may be extended by agreement between the construction employer and the negotiating representatives.
