All negotiations that take place between an employer, a group of employers or one or more employers` organizations and one or more workers` organizations to define working conditions and employment are part of collective bargaining. The scope of collective bargaining covers all workers whose remuneration and/or conditions of employment are fixed by one or more collective agreements, including workers benefiting from agreements on the basis of their extension. Section 7. Negotiated procedure. In order to complete the negotiations and prepare the draft collective agreement or agreement, the parties shall set up a committee composed of an equal number of representatives responsible for the necessary powers. In Sweden, around 90% of employees are covered by collective agreements and 83% in the private sector (2017).   Collective agreements generally contain minimum wage provisions. Sweden has no legislation on minimum wages or laws to extend collective agreements to disorganized employers. Unorganized employers can sign replacement agreements directly with unions, but many are not. The Swedish model of self-regulation applies only to companies and workers covered by collective agreements.
 Workers are not required to join a union on a particular job. However, most sectors of activity with an average trade union organization of 70% are subject to a collective agreement. An agreement does not prohibit higher wages and better social benefits, but sets a legal minimum, much like a minimum wage. In addition, a national agreement on income policy is often, but not always, reached, including all trade unions, employers` organisations and the Finnish government.  Dalam rangka meningkatkan kualitas Perjanjian Kerja Bersama, IndustriALL Global Union mengadakan collective bargaining training (pelatihan perundingan bersama). The right to conduct collective bargaining on behalf of workers is conferred on trade unions represented by their competent bodies or by other representative bodies approved by workers. .
