I have been offered a collective agreement or an individual

Customer Question

i have been offered a collective agreement or an individual agreement. Both offer allowances such as shift and meal allowances as additional benefits. The company still has in place the 30 day rule. so I will be covered by the collective terms for the first 30 days. The IEA offered to me has allowances which are less than the Collective but the hourly rate is the same. Is this correct?
