Shadow of person with helmet

Trade unions have the right to take industrial action in order to compel a posting employer to enter into a collective agreement.

The work and employment conditions that trade unions can demand through industrial action are limited to minimum wage and other minimum conditions in the areas referred to in the so-called core of rights (see paragraph 5 of the Posting of Workers Act) and which are found in a central collective agreement.
