Collective Bargaining in Colombia: Cross-Sight between the Public Sector and the Private Sector;
Negociação coletiva na Colômbia: uma visão cruzada entre o setor público e o setor privado
Conventional coverage rate in Colombia has an extremely low contrasting with the constitutional recognition of the right to collective bargaining. After a brief analysis of the right to collective bargaining from a constitutional perspective, this paper aims to focus on two central purposes that are directly linked to the implementation of the collective agreement: negotiators and effectiveness of the convention. In this context, a crossover study of the legal regimes of the collective bargaining for public employees and collective bargaining in the private sector is relevant for several reasons. Indeed, while both devices assign to any trade-union the power to negotiate, the application conditions of the negotiated product vary substantially. This, therefore, leads to project toward convergence of both legal systems on two main aspects: to reinforce the legitimacy of the negotiators and to extend the effects of the negotiated product.
