Mid Term Agreement
Once the contract has been concluded by the parties, the Director of the Agency has the right to approve or refuse the contract. The authorisation decision shall apply to the entire agreement; If the head of agency opposes only one clause of a multilateral agreement, the entire agreement shall be deemed to have been rejected. Once the agreement is approved, it can be implemented. However, a union would be well advised to guard against two possible management measures. First, management may declare a provision of an already approved agreement illegal and refuse to enforce that provision. It can do so from the first day of a new agreement. If that is the case, it has the advantage of being able to apply its proposed medium-term amendment because it still has an agreement, while it essentially cancels a clause that it never liked but accepted in order to reach an agreement. .
