Wait stated that dhBs had agreed that NZNO`s collective bargaining with DHB, if it resulted in an increase of more than 2% per year, would take place in discussions on managing a possible pressure flow. « This means that there may be more money for former health care providers if they are forced to pay more caregivers under the NZNO collective agreement with the DHB. » At the organizational level, we focus exclusively on two variables: the collective agreement decided by each nursing home and the size of the facility. The first variable, the collective agreement, is essentially a kind of global variable in working conditions and wage levels, as shown in Table 1.1. The integration of collective agreements and facility size into the model helps to reduce the inexplicable variance in 639 care homes by about 11% (i.e., when the level 2 variance is compared to that of level 2 of the empty model). Our finding that temporary workers are more satisfied with work than permanent employees suggests possible management strategies. These strategies are independent of specific labour agreements that do not specifically address broader working conditions that can help create an organizational climate and environment for workers. In particular, some authors note that the high turnover rate among caregivers has often been associated with low employment and poor employment benefits for workers (Mgr et al., 2009). Working conditions in the public sector, including workplace benefits, are governed by collective agreements that can be defined as instruments for regulating wages and working conditions (leave, working time, etc.) at the industrial level (Feldman – Scheffler, 1982). We expect that collective agreements with higher base wages or/and better non-monetary working conditions will be associated with greater job satisfaction. Important collective agreements are available below as MDPs. If your collective agreement is not mentioned here and you would like a copy, please contact our Assistance Centre on 0800 28 38 48 or nurses@nzno.org.nz. Independent variables at the organizational level include both collective agreements and the size of the facility.

The latter is measured in number of beds and declared as one of the four levels, as shown in Table 2.2. As has already been said, trade union agreements and agreements give rise to a number of factors and effects (i.e. taking into account wages, employment organization, social assistance, overtime, etc.). The trade union agreement or agreement is the key variable that we introduce into the model to identify the influence of these factors on motivation. There are different types of agreements, as described in the table. The contract chosen as a basic or reference contract is the agreement that declares the lowest base salary. The effect of another contract form is measured against the reference contract. Through collective bargaining and lobbying with governments with other members of the Community, trade unions have minimum standards: one of the characteristics of trade unionism in the workplace is a collective approach to wages and conditions of employment. David Wait, NZNO`s industrial advisor for aged care, said he was pleased that Ryman, who does not have a collective agreement with NZNO but employs NZNO members, paid the same rates – an increase on the current DHBs basic wage scale – that NZNO called for during the 2018 negotiations on elder care. In European countries, a collective agreement is recognized as an institutional legal agreement. In total, two-thirds of European workers are subject to collective agreements (Visser, 2008).
