Those `autonomous agreements` are `voluntary` in so far as they are concluded with or without the initiative of the Commission, but are not implemented in accordance with the method of a Council decision under Article 155(2) TFEU, even if they are implemented under that provision … in accordance with the practices and procedures specific to the social partners and the Member States`. Examples of cross-sectoral stand-alone agreements, as mentioned above, relate to telework (2002), work-related stress (2004), workplace harassment and violence (2007) and inclusive labour markets (2010). There are also autonomous agreements at sectoral level – e.B. the Agreement on the European Driving Licence providing a cross-border interoperability service (2004); So far, only one cross-sectoral agreement – the Agreement on the Protection of Workers` Health through the Proper Handling and Use of Crystalline Silicon Dioxide and Products Containing It” (2006) – has been concluded. Simply put, once we have been ordered to exchange all creditors with us, we can effectively freeze payments to creditors until an agreement is finalized. Some consultants say that a voluntary agreement of the company is paid by creditors. This is a bit misleading and it is likely that personal guarantees will be needed to cover payments in the company`s voluntary agreement and other costs. What happens if it fails??? Make a mistake.
You will make a big bill for which you are personally responsible. We do not require these personal guarantees.

The aim of this second work programme on EU social dialogue was to promote growth, employment and the modernisation of the European social model. The 2006-2008 work programme also included the conclusion of two “autonomous” framework agreements similar to those on telework and work-related stress. A framework agreement was the one on harassment and violence in the workplace (signed on 26 April 2007); the other arrangement will be either on disadvantaged workers or on lifelong learning. As regards terminology, the social partners decided to maintain the concept of `voluntary agreement` for previous agreements (teleworking and stress), but to move to the term `autonomous agreements` for future European framework agreements. It depends a lot on the total number of creditors, employees, the position of the bank and the level of negotiation required. Ultimately, a company voluntary agreement is an agreement and an agreement involves talking to people and stakeholders in the company.
This helps if the company has good financial information and there is no compressed timeline due to aggressive legal action by creditors. .
