Spain -Supreme court rules that expired agreements remain valid December 20, 2014

The Supreme Court has given a blow to one of the pillars of the labour reform: the termination of expired collective agreements. The social section of the High Court ruled by eight votes to six that rights contained in collective agreements remain effective even after an agreement expires. A labour reform in 2012 ended the legal concept which prescribed that collective agreements are automatically prolonged indefinitely until employers and workers have negotiated a new agreement. The trade unions brought the case successfully to the court after having been confronted with non-respect of an expired agreement in the company ATESA.
