Working conditions and working conditions set out in the national agreement prevail over the provisions established on the ground. However, signatory contractors are bound by salaries, fringes, benefits and other contributions under the local agreement. Although they are not required to sign a local agreement, signatory contractors must sign the local trust agreement in writing. 33 Eight (8) consecutive hours per day represent a normal working day with a flexible departure time between 6 hours .m and 10:00 a.m. Forty (40) hours per week, five (5) consecutive days, Monday to Saturday, represent a working week, provided it is carried out at the employee`s choice and agreed by the employer and the local union. Posted working conditions may be changed with the agreement of the local union and the employer. By mutual agreement between the employer and the local union, the standard work week can be set by four (4) consecutive days of ten (10) hours.
