All employers must offer their workers either an individual or collective Employment Agreement written in plain language. Employment Agreements should include:
The most dramatic change in the organization of labor in New Zealand is arguably the individualization of the employment relationship, which is more pronounced among younger workers. The public sector is more strongly unionized than the private sector. There is growing evidence of a collapse of collective bargaining in the private sector; it is five times more common in the public sector. Union renewal did not occur when the Employment Relations Act replaced the Employment Contracts Act. Employers’ organizations have widened the range of their services from lobbying nationally and locally on behalf of business and industry to include legal, education and promotional activities. They are specifically addressing regional shortages of skilled labor, through the provision of schemes such as migrant worker placement. There is less need for institutional employer industrial representation, given that less than a quarter of New Zealand workers are covered by a collective agreement.
