Spain and Switzerland are similar in many respects to the previous group, but in Spain the recent reform has made it a little easier for agreements reached at a lower level to revoke higher-level agreements (but exceptions are rarely applied at the moment), whereas in Switzerland coordination still does not have a minor role. 33. ←. Because of the opposition of trade unions to full decentralisation and to employers` organizations (dominated by large companies), they have resisted increased competition in wage-setting. And also because of a lack of capacity and representation of workers to negotiate agreements at the enterprise level. The areas covered by labour law are mainly physical working conditions and conditions of employment and, to the extent required by law, the scope of collective bargaining is limited.  Hijzen, A., P. Martins and J. Parlevliet (2019), “Frontal assault versus incremental change: A comparison of collective bargaining in Portugal and the Netherlands,” IZA Journal of Labor Policy, Vol. 9/1, dx.doi.org/10.2478/izajolp-2019-0008. The main objective of the organization is to perform the work of the staff at a minimum cost in the workplace and thus obtain a high profit rate. Maximum labour use is a must for effective management.
To this end, cooperation on the part of workers is necessary and collective bargaining is an instrument for achieving and promoting cooperation. Labour disputes are most often due to certain direct or indirect causes and are due to rumours and misunderstandings. Collective bargaining is the best way to maintain cordial relations. The operating data of WERS and REPONSE indicate that workplace disputes are much more frequent in France and that the union presence is strongly and positively linked to a more frequent frequency of collective disputes in both countries (which is also confirmed by the subjective assessment of the social climate in the workplace by managers, as shown by the establishment surveys). Overall, the recent analysis of Amossé and Forth (2016) confirms that, at least in the case of France and Great Britain, the presence of a trade union representative did contribute to the decline in turnover, as proposed by Hirschman (1972) and Freeman and Medoff (1984), but that collective disputes were also intensified. (iv) A series of agreements provides for joint consultation in various forms; feasible and effective. The Office of Labor Management Standards, part of the U.S. Department of Labor, is required to collect all collective agreements for 1,000 or more workers, with the exception of those involving railroads and airlines.  They offer the public access to these collections through their website. This result suggests that unions or workers` representatives on the ground reduce output by offering a stronger collective voice. On the contrary, direct language agreements (periodic departmental meetings, surveys on workers` attitudes, proposal systems) have no statistically significant link with the exit rate in France, while they are positively correlated with departures to Britain.
While Freeman and Medoff (1984 proposed that The Voice could reduce resignations, they also understood that the articulation of the voice (typically in the form of complaints) would likely lead to some degree of open conflict in the workplace, while the issues would be discussed and resolved. i) Most agreements are at the factory level. However, there are some agreements at the industry level; These include the process of worker unionization, the management of negotiations and the interpretation of collective agreements on wages, working time and other conditions of workers who invoke dispute resolution procedures in concerted economic measures. The main objective of the development of the collective bargaining technique is to improve relations between workers and management and thus maintain peace in industries.
