Ferrovial

Ferrovial - Integrated annual report 2013 / Labor unions and collective bargaining

Labor relations between Ferrovial and its employees are based on compliance with the applicable legislation in each country, international conventions and other legal and regulatory provisions governing employment.

Practically all employees are covered by collective bargaining regulations in each country. In this sense, it is worth highlighting the framework agreement signed with the International Federation of Building and Woodworkers, FECOMA and MCA, which brings together nearly 350 labor unions and represents around 12 million members in 135 countries. It is an agreement to respect and promote the principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO Tripartite Declaration, the OECD guidelines for multinational companies, and the United Nations’ Global Compact.

In every country where it operates, Ferrovial guarantees workers’ rights such as the right to strike, freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining by appointed workers’ representatives and labor unions. Collective bargaining agreements currently govern the working conditions of 78% of employees.
