Publication of the collective bargaining agreement coverage rate

Chapter 24. Employment and wages

Table 24.23Opens in new window, which contains information on agreements, labour disputes and other labour statistics within the area of Employment and Wages Statistics, has been modified to improve its information content. Instead of the LFS wage and wage-earners series, it now includes the collective bargaining agreement coverage rate compiled by the Ministerio de Trabajo y Economía Social.

This ratio is defined as the proportion of wage relations covered by collective agreements. It is calculated as the quotient between the number of labour relations covered by collective agreements and the total number of labour relations that can be regulated by collective agreements in accordance with national law and practice. For the calculation of the coverage rate, information on labour relations from the Social Security General Treasury is used. For more information, see: in new window
