Collective Agreements in BC


Collective agreements must meet certain minimum standards set out under the Act. This includes minimum wage, termination notice, leaves and group termination.

Some areas, such as overtime rates and statutory holidays can be negotiated outside the Act, however, if there is no provision in a collective agreement, the Act applies in these areas.

Any disputes about minimum standards under a collective agreement must be resolved through the grievance process.
