Sectoral collective bargaining is an aim of trade unions or labor unions to reach a collective agreement that covers all workers in a sector of the economy. It contrasts to enterprise bargaining where agreements cover individual firms. Generally countries with sectoral collective bargaining have higher rates of union organisation[citation needed] and better coverage of collective agreements than countries with enterprise bargaining[citation needed].

United Kingdom[edit]

While sectoral bargaining used to be standard in the UK[citation needed], enterprise bargaining was advocated by the Royal Commission on Trade Unions and Employers' Associations chaired by Lord Donovan[citation needed].

United States[edit]

Sectoral bargaining was promoted by the National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933[citation needed], but struck down and replaced by enterprise bargaining under the National Labor Relations Act of 1935[citation needed].
