Abstract/Citation: Promulgated by the General Office of the Ministry of Labour. Provides "opinions" on collective wage bargaining in foreign investment enterprises. Collective bargaining must be requested by a union or at least half of an enterprise's workforce. The collective agreement shall reflect the principle of equal pay for equal work. Both parties to an agreement shall not resort to "extreme measures" during bargaining. Sets forth which matters shall be regulated by collective agreement (wage, wage distribution, overtime, annual leave) and which factors shall be considered (labour costs, regional wages, government wage guidelines, consumer price index, labour productivity, enterprise profit and capital gains). S. 8 provides that collective agreements shall be legally binding.
