The article presents the situation of company-level collective agreements in relation to collective bargaining in general. It focuses on normative and statistical aspects, presenting the numbers of concluded and binding agreements, as well as attempting to assess the approximate number of employees and other persons covered by collective agreements (including the situation in particular provinces). This is a starting point for the assessment of the potential and the actual role collective agreements play in shaping the employment conditions, especially when facing the complete collapse of multi-establishment collective agreements. The presented data is the result of a study conducted at Regional Labour Inspectorates and of analyses and reports conducted by the General Labour Inspectorate.
