LABOR RELATIONS

Of EDPR 822 employees at the end of 2010, 19% were covered by collective bargaining agreements.

Generally, collective bargaining agreements apply to all employees working under an employment relationship with and for the account of the respective companies, regardless of the type of contract, the professional group into which they are classified, their occupation or job. However, matters relating to the corporate organization itself, the laws of each country or even usage and custom in each country result in certain groups being expressly excluded from the scope of collective bargaining agreements.
