Will minutes of the negotiations be kept?

Upon request, the employer must ensure that written minutes of the cooperation negotiations are kept, and they must include, at the minimum, the dates of the negotiations, a list of the attendees and the outcome of the negotiations or the dissenting opinions of the attendees. The dissenting opinions on both sides must be recorded.

It is important for the employee representative to remember to make this request to the employer. The attendees inspect the minutes and sign them for approval. The inspection and signing of the minutes must be agreed on by the negotiating parties.

Check the collective agreement that your workplace follows and the Act on Co-operation within Undertakings or the Church’s co-operation agreement to see what they say about the matter (only partially available in English).
