AIIC collective agreements with international organisations – benefitting ALL interpreters

Collective agreements between AIIC and key international organisations govern the remuneration and working conditions of freelance conference interpreters.

These agreements are negotiated by AIIC-appointed negotiating delegations; once agreements are in place, professional delegations – representing both AIIC members and other interpreters – oversee their proper implementation and address any problems that may arise.

AIIC’s Standing Committee of the Agreement Sector (SCAS) coordinates negotiating delegations across the Agreement Sectors.
