Plant Agreement (company agreement); written agreement concluded 
between the owner of a company and the  Works Council on matters which 
legal norms or  Collective Agreements have made subject to such an 
agreement. Plant agreements are primarily an instrument for ensuring 
worker participation in company management. In certain fields, such as 
disciplinary regulations or supervision of employees by methods which 
may affect human dignity or output-related remuneration, plant 
agreements are compulsory. In other matters (e.g. general rules, 
working hours, working conditions, social compensation plans, 
holidays, company pensions), they are optional.
