What is collective bargaining?

Collective bargaining is the mutual obligation of employers and employees' representatives to meet at reasonable times and confer in good faith with respect to wages, hours, standards of productivity and performance, and other terms and conditions of employment. This includes the mutual obligation to negotiate an agreement and bargain over questions arising under an agreement.  MGL Ch. 150 – Conciliation and Arbitration of Industrial Disputes, regulates collective bargaining and labor relations for municipal employees in Massachusetts. “A Guide To The Massachusetts Public Employee Collective Bargaining Law” is published by the Massachusetts Department of Labor Relations as a resource to better understand collective bargaining in the Commonwealth.
