At the EU-Ukraine summit in Paris in September 2008, the parties agreed that the new expanded agreement would be known as the Association Agreement. When a complaint is to be filed: if there is disagreement between the employer or a group of employers and a local union or the AU on the intent, service, application or compliance of the terms of the national service and maintenance contract. In March 2007, negotiations began on a new expanded agreement to replace the previous PARTNERSHIP and cooperation agreement between the EU and Ukraine under the EU-Ukraine Action Plan. The members of the supervisory committee are appointed by the Joint UA/MSCA Labor Committee, with contributions from the local MCA-Exec and the international representative. The committee consists of an equal number of local contractors for the management of the company and local business leaders for the work. All local boards within the jurisdiction, local training coordinators, staff officers and the AU international representative, who are associated with the MSCA, should only be invited to each meeting in an advisory capacity. The committee elects its own chairman and secretary. The Chair is responsible for setting up meetings and notifying all committee members. The secretary is responsible for the preservation of minutes and notes. These positions are expected to pass between management and work each year.
Meetings should, where possible, take place two to three times a year. Training coordinators should be invited to meetings at least twice a year to report on local training activities/programs. The Committee should be encouraged to visit local training centres. At the end of each meeting, a report with agenda and minutes should be forwarded directly to the AU President and the Executive Director of the MSCA. The report should also contain information on the date of the meeting, participation in the meeting, the points discussed and possible recommendations for the revision of Calendar A, which should be reviewed by the UA/MSCA Joint Working Committee. Typically, an oversight committee monitors a geographic area that spans several local trade union areas or, in many cases, an entire state. The composition of an oversight committee is therefore broader than any specific local collective agreement committee.
