Non-Economic Provisions of Collective Bargaining Agreements in 2016 (First of a Three-Part Series)

The registration of Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) is closely monitored as an indicator of harmonious labor-management relations and industrial peace in the country. A collective bargaining is a process where the parties agree to fix and administer terms and conditions of employment which must not be below the minimum standards fixed by law, and sets a mechanism for resolving the parties’ grievances.

Specifically, a CBA is a contract executed upon incorporating the agreements reached after negotiations with the employer and the exclusive bargaining representative of the employees with respect to wages, hours of work and all other terms and conditions of employment. As such, a CBA includes economic provisions and non-economic provisions. Economic provisions include monetary value of wage increases, loan benefits, bonuses, allowances, retirement plan, and other fringe benefits for the employees. On the other hand, non-economic provisions include union security clauses, grievance procedures, labor-management cooperation schemes, and other provisions without monetary value.

This three-part series of LABSTAT Updates presents administrative-based data on CBAs gathered from the CBA documents filed by labor organizations at the Bureau of Labor Relations (BLR) of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). This first part of a three-part series on CBAs specifically highlights the non-economic provisions of the 328 CBAs registered in 2016.
