SMH-IS will review the rights achieved in the context of collective bargaining such as:
    • Limiting employment through agencies to the maximum of 5 per cent of the total number of those employed in the company.
    • Limiting the number of non-permanent employment contracts to a maximum of 20 per cent of the total number of the employed.
    • Negotiating that the signed collective agreements be valid for workers employed through labour agencies.
