WageIndicator Foundation - Collective Bargaining Agreement Database
WageIndicator Foundation aims to assist individual workers and employers with real wage data during negotiations and job search; workers, employers and labour inspectors with comprehensive insight in national Labour Law, and how to comply with the law; and individual workers and employers with problems of daily working life. The national WageIndicator websites function as online, up to date labour market libraries for workers, employers, governments, academics, and media alike.
WageIndicator compiles a global database of Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA), which gives access to the original texts of Collective Agreements and to compare clauses at national and international levels. By now, more than 1000 agreements in 56 countries have been archived, coded and published in their national language. WageIndicator social partners report new CBAs to WageIndicator staff.
