collective bargaining
Under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, most union rights and immunities only apply where the union is recognised and certified under section 6 of the Act (by the Department of Education and Training and Training Certification Officer) as unconnected with and independent of, an employer or association of employers. A union is recognised if there is a formal agreement between the employer and that union for collective bargaining purposes.

+ collective bargaining
USA
Negotiations between an employer (typically represented by management) and a group of employees (usually represented by a union or other labor organization) regarding the terms and conditions of employment, such as wages, hours of work, employee benefits, working conditions, grievance procedures and the rights and responsibilities of trade unions. These negotiations result in a signed contract or collective agreement. The main body of law governing collective bargaining is the National Labor Relations Act which, among other things, grants employees the right to collectively bargain and join trade unions. Collective bargaining is also governed by state statutory laws, administrative agency regulations, and judicial decisions. In areas where federal and state law overlap, state laws are preempted.
