The agreement will enter into force from January 1, 2016 until December 1, 2018. It contains significant additions to the increases that were negotiated last year. The agreement is based on a framework agreement between labour market companies of 27 October 2015 and the Pension Rights Protocol of 5 May 2011 and aims to ensure equal wage developments on the basis of a common wage policy and pension rights compensation. The contract and salary schedules can be found below. At the centre of the plans of the HGV companies is the collapse of a decades-old distinction between mechanical and electrical workers and contractors. The new proposals – the Building Engineering Services National Agreement (BESNA) set a set of wages and conditions for mechanical and electrical workers to replace the countless separate competing agreements that are currently in place. The Act is now enshrined in the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 p.179, which provides that collective agreements are definitively considered non-binding in the United Kingdom. This presumption can be rebutted if the agreement is written and includes an express provision that it should be legally enforceable. Vr enters into collective agreements with the Association of Icelandic Enterprises (Samt-k atvinnul-fsins, SA) and the Icelandic Trade Association (FA, formerly f.S.), as well as with several companies outside these organisations. The company has been facing serious work problems over the past year and has been working on a compensation contract ever since. 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. Unseated employers can sign replacement agreements directly with unions, but many do not. The Swedish model of self-regulation applies only to jobs and workers covered by collective agreements.  A new collective agreement between VR and SA was signed on May 29, 2015. The duration of the agreement is until the end of 2018. The agreement was adopted by 73.9% of the votes cast in the vote of the deputies held from 10 to 22 June 2015.
