Kaur v MG Rover Group Ltd  EWCA Civ 1507 is a case of UK labour law related to the employment contract. He noted that the collective agreement undertook not to create mandatory redundancies, that it was “aspirational” and that it was not likely to be included in individual employment contracts. This meant that, in addition to the fact that the collective agreement was not applicable under the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act (Consolidation Act) of 1992, Section 179, promises made to workers could be broken. Question: It would be hard to believe that Bahrain would sign a standardization agreement without the Saudi government being willing to see it and accept it de facto.

I can accept that The Way Ahead generally has the character of an intermediate and negotiating point of view between the applicant and the unions and that what it says about compulsory dismissal reflects statements about more flexible worker work. But this does not deter the interviewee at all. That is what would be expected of a collective agreement which, as both parties accept, is an agreement, but not something that, in itself, is normally applicable by law. At the collective level, there is no doubt that various assurances and statements about the future have been made by both the employer and the unions.

The “rehabilitation” package is more complex because the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction has not yet done the necessary duties and wonders if it is able to ensure a solid professional qualification, job creation and rehabilitation. Complications that could arise: Maoist fighters defy the agreement, haggle over their ranks in the army, uncertainty over the rehabilitation package, disagreement over the number of fighters who must contribute to the party coffers. One of the criticisms of the seven-point agreement is that it says nothing about the “democratization and reduction of legislation” of the Nepalese army, which is also a key element of the peace process. The CPA, signed five years ago this week, called for reforms in the security sector to ensure full civilian control of the national army and other security services. A detailed security sector reform plan (SSR) should be developed in due course, taking into account Nepal`s legitimate security interests, while avoiding unnecessary and prohibitive militarization of Nepalese society. Baram: “I would say that even though we have never waged a war against the United Arab Emirates or Bahrain, it is as important as our agreement with Jordan.” The agreement also expands partnerships in the region as the region`s dynamics evolve. The guarantee of job security appears to have had a significant impact on facilitating productivity gains. Scali (1997: 7) points out that “the Blue Circle agreement recognizes that workers are often the best source of economic ideas and will only come forward if they feel they are not endangering their jobs.” In the case of the BCC distribution agreement, discussions with the company`s truck drivers and their unions would have produced savings ideas of $1.2 million (Financial Times, January 7, 1997).
