A collective agreement is mandatory in two cases: a collective agreement is also recognizable by the company`s NAF or EPA code. This code characterizes the main activity of the company from the French nomenclature of activities. The number assigned by INSEE (French Statistical Institute) to each company and each of its subsidiaries consists of four numbers and one letter. As with collective bargaining at the sectoral level, representativeness agreements signed in January 2014 established new rules for the signing of agreements and the composition of the RSU (see section on representation in the workplace). Collective bargaining in the private sector in Italy takes place mainly at two levels: at the sectoral and enterprise levels. Recently, however, changes to the system have potentially strengthened negotiations at the enterprise level, while the number of agreements signed by non-representative bodies has increased. After the three confederations adopted different positions on a productivity document in 2012, the three confederations signed a draft agreement on representativeness with Confindustria on 31 May 2013.  The detailed agreement on the implementation of this project, signed on 10 January 2014 – also by the three main federations – included (unlike the draft) a specific section on the respective role of industry and enterprise bargaining, as well as a number of questions about who is entitled to negotiate and sign contracts.  This reiterated the position set out in the 2011 agreement that enterprise agreements could change inter-professional agreements (including their deterioration), but only if the agreement at the sector level allowed it itself. The experts at Fred Payroll and Rue de la Paye work together to ensure that you have a pay-settling process that respects the regulations and collective agreements in force at all times. In Sweden, about 90% of employees are subject to collective agreements and 83% in the private sector (2017).
  Collective agreements generally contain minimum wage provisions. Sweden does not have legislation on minimum wages or legislation extending collective agreements to disorganised employers.
