Where the collective work contract is conducted from at least 3 copies, and each party keeps a copy of it, and the third copy is deposited with the ministry for registration in a special registry. The collective work contract shall be binding from the date specified in it, and in the event that the date is not set, it shall be from the date of its registration with the Ministry, provided that these contracts are published in the Official Gazette and announced on a special board at the workplace.
The collective work contract is conducted for a definite or indefinite period. If it is contracted for a definite period, it may not exceed two years, and if it is conducted for an indefinite period, and at least two years have passed since its implementation,
Any of the parties to the contract may take the following:
Requesting the terminate of the contract by virtue of a notice notified to the other party at least one month prior to the date of termination.
