Decree No. 1007/1995

Apply measures to enable the establishment of the Negotiating Commission for the Teaching Sector and the formation of the Non-Teaching Negotiating Commission at the general and particular levels, in accordance with article 19 of Act No. 24.447.

Bs. As., 7/7/95

Article 19 of Law No. 24.447 and Laws No. 23.929 and 24.185, and


That article 19 of Act No. 24.447 established procedural guidelines for collective bargaining at the Naiconal Universities.

That this rule was sanctioned by the legislator in order to adapt the existing legal regime in the field of collective bargaining (Law No. 23.929 for the teaching sector and Law No. 24.185 for the staff of the Public Administration) to the characteristics of the university sector.

The same states that the National Universities will assume the representation of the employer sector in the development of the collective negotiations provided by the Nros Laws. 23.929 and 24.1185, all prescriptions must be considered derogated from both regulatory bodies.
That the solution adopted by the legislator stems from our own legal order in which the Universities enjoy autonomy and autarchy.

That such a solution was constitutionally enshrined in the recent process of reforming our Magna Charter, through article 75, paragraph 19, which governs the principle of autonomy and autarchy of National Universities.

To attentive the particularities of each of the National Unviersities and the due respect for the principle of negotiation in minor units promoted by the National Government in the field of collective relations of work the HONORABLE CONGRESS OF THE NATION established in article 19 of Law No. 24.447, levels of negotiation that ensure harmonious coordination in the university system and safeguard the principles of academic autonomy and national autarchy.

It is necessary to establish clear guidelines, in order to enable the constitution of the Negotiating Commission of the Teaching Sector of both levels and the formation of the Negotiating Commission of the Non-Teaching Sector of both levels.

In this regard, it is essential in the collective bargaining of the sector, the joint representation in the minor units, in accordance with the principles enshrined in article 6 of Law No. 24.185, of the trade union associations with national union membership with the first-degree unions corresponding to those areas of negotiation.

That in both levels of negotiation as well as in their respective personal areas they have considered the background of negotiations initiated within the scope of the MINISTERY OF WORK and SOCIAL SECURITY.

That for the purposes of the present decree, the views of all intrinsed sectors in general and of the NATIONAL INTERUNIVERSITARY COUNCIL have been consulted and sought, and that by Plenary Agreement No. 169/95 has designated for this purpose an Advisory Committee on the subject.

That the present is given by virtue of the powers conferred by article 99, paragraph 2 of the NATIONAL CONSTITUTION.
