Compulsory Union Contribution
The Union contribution is a legal enforcement embedded in article 579 of the Consolidation of Labor Laws (CLT). Therefore, all the workers that are part of the economic category of the industry must abide the law and pay the union contribution to the Employer´s Union. This payment to the representative entity (indicated in the By Laws of the company) is performed once a year in January. Therefore the Unions may continue obtaining benefits for the sector specially when in negotiations with the government.
