Act respecting bargaining units in the social affairs sector
BARGAINING UNITS IN THE SOCIAL AFFAIRS SECTORDecember 18 2003December 18 2003
DIVISION I
INTRODUCTORY PROVISIONS
1. This Act introduces a union representation system applicable to associations of employees and institutions in the social affairs sector whose process of negotiation is governed by the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2).
To that end, this Act establishes classes of personnel according to which bargaining units are to be constituted, and limits their number. It also provides for a mechanism by which an association of employees may be certified to represent the employees included in a bargaining unit following an integration of activities, an amalgamation of institutions, or a partial transfer of activities from one institution to another. Finally, it sets out the special terms according to which the parties, following the certification of the new association of employees, must negotiate the matters defined as being the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level.
2003, c. 25, s. 1.
2. The provisions of the Labour Code (chapter C-27) apply, with the necessary modifications, to the extent that they are not inconsistent with the provisions of this Act.
2003, c. 25, s. 2.
3. When the Administrative Labour Tribunal is seized of a petition, it may rule on any question relating to the application of this Act and the Labour Code (chapter C-27). It may designate a labour relations officer to perform any function assigned to the officer by this Act, on the conditions the Tribunal determines.
2003, c. 25, s. 3; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.

UNION REPRESENTATION SYSTEM
§ 1.  — General rules
4. The bargaining units in any institution in the social affairs sector must be constituted according to the following classes of personnel:
(1)  nursing and cardio-respiratory care personnel, as defined in section 5;
(2)  paratechnical personnel and auxiliary services and trades personnel, as defined in section 6;
(3)  office personnel and administrative technicians and professionals, as defined in section 7;
(4)  health and social services technicians and professionals, as defined in section 8.
2003, c. 25, s. 4.
5. The class of nursing and cardio-respiratory care personnel comprises employees whose practice is governed by the Nurses Act (chapter I-8), employees who are members of the Ordre professionnel des infirmières et infirmiers auxiliaires du Québec and employees assigned to nursing and cardio-respiratory care, and who hold employment under one of the job titles listed in Schedule 1.
2003, c. 25, s. 5.
6. The class of paratechnical personnel and auxiliary services and trades personnel comprises employees whose job consists in performing semi-skilled tasks to provide functional support, generally to health and social services professionals or technicians, and employees whose job consists in providing manual auxiliary services or pursuing skilled or semi-skilled trades that may require a qualification certificate, and who hold employment under one of the job titles listed in Schedule 2.
2003, c. 25, s. 6.
7. The class of office personnel and administrative technicians and professionals comprises employees whose job consists in performing a set of administrative, professional, technical or routine tasks and who hold employment under one of the job titles listed in Schedule 3.
2003, c. 25, s. 7.
8. The class of health and social services technicians and professionals comprises employees whose job consists in providing health services or social services to users or in carrying out professional or technical work as part of such services, and who hold employment under one of the job titles listed in Schedule 4.
2003, c. 25, s. 8.
9. A bargaining unit may not include more than one class of personnel listed in section 4 and may only include employees whose home base is in the territory of a single agency.
Only one association of employees may be certified to represent the employees of a bargaining unit in an institution and only one collective agreement may be applicable to all the employees in that bargaining unit.
2003, c. 25, s. 9; 2005, c. 32, s. 308.
10. It is the duty of the Administrative Labour Tribunal, on being seized of a petition, to rule on the class of personnel to which a job title is related when the validity of the job title has been recognized by agreement between unions and management at the national level and the job title is not listed in any of Schedules 1 to 4.
Once a year, the Tribunal sends the Minister of Health and Social Services a list of the job titles to be added to those in Schedules 1 to 4, following decisions rendered by the Tribunal. The Minister publishes the list in the Gazette officielle du Québec. The Minister of Justice ensures that the list of job titles is updated in the schedules in the Compilation of Québec Laws and Regulations, based on the published list.
2003, c. 25, s. 10; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
11. Subject to section 94, a petition relating to the certification of an association of employees to represent the employees of an institution in the social affairs sector is only granted in accordance with this subdivision.
2003, c. 25, s. 11.
§ 2.  — Determination of a new bargaining unit following an integration of activities or an amalgamation of institutions
12. For the purposes of this subdivision, a reference in section 13, paragraph 1 of section 14, paragraph 2 of section 15, subparagraph 3 of the second paragraph of section 16 or the first paragraph of section 17, 18 or 19 to a certified association of employees or to an association of employees that is certified is also a reference, with the necessary modifications, to an association of employees having filed, within the time specified in the Labour Code (chapter C-27), a petition for certification to represent employees that is still pending on the day preceding the date of integration or amalgamation.
2003, c. 25, s. 12.
13. If the Minister ascertains that an integration of activities under section 330 of the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or an amalgamation of institutions under section 323 of that Act will involve one or more institutions in which there is a certified association of employees, the Minister notifies the Administrative Labour Tribunal, indicating the names of the institutions and the date set for the integration or amalgamation.
The same applies if a private institution under agreement acquires the undertaking of another private institution and integrates the activities of the other institution with its own activities or amalgamates with the other institution.
2003, c. 25, s. 13; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
14. Each institution concerned draws up a status report on union representation as it exists in the institution on the day preceding the date set for the integration or amalgamation. This status report includes
(1)  a description of each existing bargaining unit and the name of the association of employees certified to represent the employees in that bargaining unit;
(2)  the names, addresses, social insurance numbers, job titles and job title numbers of all the employees in the institution, including employees who are on leave without pay and employees who are on a recall or standby list to the extent that the latter performed work during the 12 months before the date of the integration or amalgamation, identifying employees who
(a)  are included in a bargaining unit referred to in paragraph 1;
(b)  do not belong to any bargaining unit because there is no association of employees certified to represent those employees.
2003, c. 25, s. 14.
15. On the day preceding the date set for the integration or amalgamation, each institution concerned
(1)  sends the Minister the information referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14;
(2)  sends each of the associations of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14 only the information referred to in paragraph 2 of that section that concerns employees included in a class of personnel who belong to a bargaining unit for which the association is certified, but not the employees’ addresses or social insurance numbers.
2003, c. 25, s. 15.
16. Within 30 days after the date of integration or amalgamation and based on the information referred to in paragraph 2 of section 14, the integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation identifies any new bargaining unit corresponding to a class of personnel for which an association of employees may eventually be certified in the institution, and prepares a list of the employees to be included in that bargaining unit, with their job titles, addresses or social insurance numbers.
On or before the expiry of those 30 days, the institution
(1)  posts the information required under the first paragraph and a copy of all the information required under section 14, but not the employees’ addresses and social insurance numbers, for 20 days at the usual places for posting information in the institution;
(2)  sends the information required under the first paragraph to the Administrative Labour Tribunal, using an information technology medium determined by the Tribunal, and informs the Tribunal, for each class of employees, of the number of employees represented by a certified association of employees, the number of employees not so represented, and the date on which the period for posting the information ends;
(3)  sends each association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14 only the information referred to in subparagraph 2 that concerns a class of personnel for which the association is already certified as regards some of the employees to be included in the new bargaining unit, but not the employees’ addresses or social insurance numbers.
2003, c. 25, s. 16; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
17. With respect to a new bargaining unit in the integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation, an association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14 may file a petition with the Administrative Labour Tribunal applying for certification to represent the employees to be included in the new bargaining unit, if that association is already certified for some of those employees.
The petition for certification is filed with the Tribunal on or before the eightieth day after the date of integration or amalgamation. A petition filed outside the prescribed time is refused, unless the Tribunal believes circumstances warrant granting the association of employees an extension, which may not however exceed 20 days.
A copy of the petition is notified to the integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation, which posts it at the usual places for posting information in the institution.
If the petition is filed by an association of employees that is not certified but is referred to in section 12, the association indicates the Tribunal’s record number that refers to its petition for certification.
2003, c. 25, s. 17; 2015, c. 15, s. 237; I.N. 2016-01-01 (NCCP).
18. The associations of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14 may form an employee-associations group to apply for certification to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit if one of those associations is already certified for some of those employees. An employee’s membership in an association of employees that is a member of such a group constitutes membership in the group.
For the purposes of this Act and the Labour Code (chapter C-27), such an employee-associations group is deemed to be an association of employees.
2003, c. 25, s. 18.
19. The associations of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14 may agree to designate one of their number to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit if each of those associations is already certified for some of those employees.
If the associations filed a petition for certification in accordance with section 17, they may agree to have one of their number certified to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, or to merge into a single association to represent those employees.
The agreements are evidenced in writing.
An agreement under the first paragraph is sent to the Administrative Labour Tribunal before the expiry of the 80-day time limit for filing a petition specified in the second paragraph of section 17 or any extension granted by the Tribunal under that paragraph. An agreement under the second paragraph is sent to the Administrative Labour Tribunal within 10 days after the expiry of the applicable time limit.
2003, c. 25, s. 19; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
20. Upon receipt of one or more petitions filed under section 17, the Administrative Labour Tribunal proceeds as follows, subject to section 21:
(1)  if the Tribunal concludes that the petitioning association is the only association to have filed a petition to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, it certifies the association, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(2)  if the Tribunal concludes that the petitioning association, in keeping with the first paragraph of section 19, has obtained the agreement of all the associations of employees referred to in that paragraph that it represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, the Tribunal certifies the association, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(3)  if the Tribunal concludes that all the petitioning associations agree, in keeping with the second paragraph of section 19, to have one of their number certified to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, it certifies the association, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(4)  if the Tribunal concludes that all the petitioning associations agree, in keeping with the second paragraph of section 19, to merge into a single association of employees, it certifies the association of employees resulting from the merger, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(5)  if the Tribunal concludes that there is more than one association petitioning to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, it orders the holding of a vote for the employees of the bargaining unit and certifies the association of employees that obtains the greatest number of votes, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit.
2003, c. 25, s. 20; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
21. In all cases where at least 40% of the employees in a bargaining unit in the process of being constituted were not represented by an association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14 on the day preceding the date of integration or amalgamation, the Administrative Labour Tribunal, before granting an association of employees certification under section 20, ascertains the will of the employees who will be included in a new bargaining unit to be represented by an association of employees, by ordering a vote by secret ballot.
The vote may be held simultaneously with a vote under paragraph 5 of section 20.
2003, c. 25, s. 21; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
22. Only an employee duly entered on the list required under the first paragraph of section 16 may participate in a vote ordered by the Administrative Labour Tribunal under paragraph 5 of section 20 or section 21, up to one vote per class of personnel to which the employee belongs. To that end, within two days after a request by an association of employees referred to in subparagraph 3 of the second paragraph of section 16, the Tribunal communicates the address of an employee who will be included in a bargaining unit for which the association of employees filed a petition for certification in accordance with section 17.
The only rules governing the conduct of the vote are those determined by the Tribunal for the purposes of this Act. The vote may be held by mail or in any other manner the Tribunal considers appropriate.
2003, c. 25, s. 22; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
23. If, on the expiry of the time limit specified in the second paragraph of section 17, no petition has been filed with the Administrative Labour Tribunal by an association of employees entitled to do so for a class of personnel, the Tribunal notifies the integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation, and the Minister.
Within 30 days after receipt of that notice, the institution may bring the matter before the Tribunal by means of a petition for the revocation of the association’s certification. If the institution fails to act within that time, the Minister may bring the matter before the Tribunal for the same purpose.
2003, c. 25, s. 23; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
24. Upon receipt of a petition filed under the second paragraph of section 23, the Administrative Labour Tribunal revokes the certification of the association of employees that represented the employees included in a bargaining unit that existed in the institution on the day preceding the date of integration or amalgamation.
2003, c. 25, s. 24; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
25. The Administrative Labour Tribunal renders its decision concerning a petition filed under section 17 within 150 days after the date on which the petition was filed.
The president of the Tribunal may extend that time limit if the president believes circumstances warrant it.
2003, c. 25, s. 25; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
26. The decision of the Administrative Labour Tribunal is sent to the association of employees newly certified under section 20 and, where applicable, to each of the other petitioning associations, to the association whose accreditation is revoked under section 24, to the integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation, and to the Minister.
2003, c. 25, s. 26; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
27. The newly certified association of employees is subrogated by operation of law in all the rights and obligations resulting from a collective agreement to which a certified association of employees it replaces was a party.
2003, c. 25, s. 27.
28. The Administrative Labour Tribunal puts an end to the processing of any other petition that is pending on the date of the integration or amalgamation if it is of the opinion that the petition concerns all or some of the employees of a single class of personnel and has the same subject or the same purposes as the petition filed under section 17 or the second paragraph of section 23.
2003, c. 25, s. 28; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
§ 3.  — Determination of a new bargaining unit following a partial transfer of activities to another institution
29. Each institution affected by a partial transfer of activities from one institution to another notifies the Administrative Labour Tribunal of the date set for the transfer when it involves the transfer of one or more employees who hold employment under a job title for which there exists either
(1)  an association of employees certified to represent the employees in the transferring institution or the receiving institution; or
(2)  an association that filed, within the time specified in the Labour Code (chapter C-27), a petition, which is still pending, for certification to represent the employees in the transferring institution or the receiving institution.
2003, c. 25, s. 29; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
30. Where the names of the employees transferred from the transferring to the receiving institution are known, following the application of the bumping or lay-off procedure set out in their collective agreement, each institution referred to in section 29 draws up a status report on union representation as it exists in the institution on the date of the partial transfer of activities for all the employees in that institution affected by the partial transfer of activities. The status report includes
(1)  a description of each existing bargaining unit affected by the partial transfer of activities and the name of the association of employees referred to in section 29;
(2)  the names, addresses, social insurance numbers, job titles and job title numbers of all the employees affected by the partial transfer of activities, including employees who are on leave without pay and employees who are on a recall or standby list to the extent that the latter performed work during the 12 months before the date of the partial transfer of activities, and who, in the case of the transferring institution, are transferred, or, in the case of the receiving institution, hold employment under a job title that is related to a class of personnel in which the transferred employees also hold employment under a job title related to that class, identifying employees who
(a)  are included in the bargaining unit referred to in paragraph 1;
(b)  do not belong to any bargaining unit because there is no association of employees certified to represent employees in their class of personnel.
2003, c. 25, s. 30.
31. Subject to the second paragraph of section 32, when an association of employees as defined in section 29 is the only association certified or having applied for certification, it becomes the new association of employees certified in the receiving institution to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit. The same applies when the association is the one, among two or more associations of employees as defined in section 29, that represents an absolute majority of the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit.
When there are two or more associations of employees as defined in section 29 and none of them represents an absolute majority of the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, a vote is held to determine which association will be certified.
2003, c. 25, s. 31.
32. It is the duty of the Administrative Labour Tribunal, on a petition by a certified association of employees as defined in section 29, to rule on any question relating to the application of section 31 and, if required, to hold a vote and certify the association that obtains the greatest number of votes.
In all cases where at least 40% of the employees in a bargaining unit in the process of being constituted were not represented by an association of employees as defined in section 29 on the date of the partial transfer of activities, the Tribunal, before granting an association of employees certification under section 31, ascertains the will of the employees who will be included in a new bargaining unit to be represented by an association of employees, by holding a vote.
The vote may be held simultaneously with a vote under the second paragraph of section 31.
The Tribunal determines the collective agreement that applies to all the employees in the receiving institution represented from then on by the newly certified association of employees.
2003, c. 25, s. 32; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
33. The seniority accumulated by an employee in an institution is recognized up to one year per period of 12 months, and the employee is included on the seniority list according to the provisions of the collective agreement determined in accordance with the fourth paragraph of section 32.
With respect to employees who were not represented by a certified association of employees, seniority is deemed to have been accumulated according to the provisions of the collective agreement referred to in the first paragraph.
The resulting seniority lists are posted within 30 days after the date of certification of the new association of employees. The periods for posting information and the seniority correction procedures set out in the collective agreement referred to in the first paragraph apply.
2003, c. 25, s. 33.
34. For the purposes of this subdivision, sections 15, 16, 17, 22 to 24 and 26 to 28 apply, with the necessary modifications.
2003, c. 25, s. 34.
DIVISION III
DETERMINATION OF CLAUSES NEGOTIATED AND AGREED AT THE LOCAL OR REGIONAL LEVEL
35. From the date of certification of a new association of employees following an integration of activities or an amalgamation of institutions, the integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation and the association of employees newly certified under section 20 negotiate the matters defined as being the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level by the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2).
The parties have 24 months from the date on which the new association of employees is certified to agree on those clauses. Failing agreement within those 24 months on a matter that is the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level, the institution must, in the ensuing 10 days, request the Minister of Labour to appoint a mediator-arbitrator to settle the disagreement, informing the association of employees of the request.
However, failing agreement, the parties may, during the first 12 months, jointly request the Minister of Labour to appoint a mediator-arbitrator to settle the disagreement. On the expiry of the first 12 months, either of the parties may make such a request to the Minister of Labour in the ensuing 12 months, informing the other party of the request.
2003, c. 25, s. 35.
36. Except where the certification of an association of employees is revoked under section 24, the clauses negotiated and agreed at the national level of the collective agreement of each certified association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14, in force on the day before the date on which the new association of employees is certified, and the local arrangements that relate to it continue to apply for employees covered by those clauses until the date that is 30 days after the date on which the new association of employees is certified.
After that period, the clauses negotiated and agreed at the national level of the collective agreement of the newly certified association of employees and the local arrangements that relate to it apply for all employees included in the new bargaining unit. The first, second and third paragraphs of section 37 apply, with the necessary modifications, to those clauses and arrangements. The seniority lists referred to in the third paragraph of that section are posted within 30 days after the date of the end of the pay period that includes the date of coming into force of the clauses and arrangements.
The clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level of a collective agreement of each certified association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 14, in force on the day before the date on which the new association of employees is certified, continue to apply for employees covered by those clauses until the date of coming into force of the new clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level. However, the parties, at the local or regional level, may, for the period between the date on which the new association is certified and the date of coming into force of the new clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level, agree to apply all or some of the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level that apply to the newly certified association of employees and that were applicable to it on the day before the date on which it was certified. Likewise, if the new association of employees is certified in accordance with paragraph 4 of section 20, the local parties may, for the same period, agree to apply all or some of the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level that apply to one of the employee associations having agreed to merge into a single association and that were applicable to it on the day before the date on which it was certified. The first three paragraphs of section 37 apply, with the necessary modifications, to the clauses subject to the agreement, and the seniority lists referred to are posted within 30 days after the date of the end of the pay period that includes the date of coming into force of the agreement.
As of the date of coming into force of an agreement relating to a matter negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level, the corresponding replaced clauses cease to apply. The institution and the association of employees certified to represent the employees of a class of personnel governed by this Act may agree to bring the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level into force on different dates.
2003, c. 25, s. 36; 2015, c. 1, s. 167.
37. The seniority accumulated by an employee in an institution before the date on which the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level come into force is recognized up to one year per period of 12 months.
With respect to employees that were not represented by a certified association of employees, seniority is deemed to have been accumulated according to the provisions of the collective agreement of the newly certified association of employees.
Seniority lists must be posted within 30 days after the date of the end of the pay period that includes the date of coming into force of the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level. The periods for posting information and the seniority correction procedures set out in the collective agreement determined for the newly certified association of employees under section 36 apply.
However, the institution and the newly certified association of employees may agree to a date for integrating seniority lists that is earlier than the date provided in the third paragraph for matters negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level that are the subject of an agreement.
2003, c. 25, s. 37.
38. Sections 59, 60 and 61 of the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2) apply, with the necessary modifications, to the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level and to the agreements arising from them.
When an agreement is filed with the Minister of Labour in accordance with section 61 of that Act, the Minister of Labour notifies the Minister of Health and Social Services, indicating the names of the parties and the bargaining unit concerned.
2003, c. 25, s. 38; 2006, c. 58, s. 70.
39. If, in accordance with section 35, a request for the appointment of a mediator-arbitrator is made to the Minister of Labour, the parties may jointly recommend a person to the Minister for appointment as mediator-arbitrator.
As soon as possible, the Minister of Labour appoints the person recommended as mediator-arbitrator or, if no joint recommendation is made, a person whose name appears on a list prepared for that purpose after consultation with the Minister of Health and Social Services.
2003, c. 25, s. 39.
40. The mediator-arbitrator endeavours to bring the parties to settle their disagreement. For that purpose, the mediator-arbitrator meets with the parties and, in case of failure or refusal to attend a meeting, gives them an opportunity to present their views.
2003, c. 25, s. 40.
41. If a disagreement subsists 60 days after the appointment of the mediator-arbitrator, the latter rules on the matters yet to be agreed on. Without delay, the mediator-arbitrator requests the association of employees and the institution to give the mediator-arbitrator, within 30 days after the request and in the specified manner,
(1)  a list of the matters that they have agreed on, accompanied by the wording they propose for their implementation;
(2)  a list of the matters yet to be agreed on;
(3)  their final offer to settle the matters referred to in subparagraph 2.
The final offer must be accompanied by the wording proposed for its incorporation into the new collective agreement.
At the end of the 30-day period mentioned in the first paragraph or as soon as the mediator-arbitrator has received the parties’ final offers, the mediator-arbitrator sends each party the other party’s final offer. The mediator-arbitrator convenes the parties to a mediation meeting within the time set by the mediator-arbitrator. If there are matters yet to be agreed on at the end of the meeting, the mediator-arbitrator must allow the parties present to present their views with respect to the criteria set out in the second paragraph of section 42.
2003, c. 25, s. 41.
42. Within 40 days after the meeting provided for in the third paragraph of section 41, the mediator-arbitrator selects either the final offer of the association of employees or that of the institution to settle the matters that have not been agreed on.
The offer selected by the mediator-arbitrator must not entail additional costs for the implementation of the matters concerned and must ensure the provision of client services.
If, in the opinion of the mediator-arbitrator, neither of the offers presented meet those criteria, the mediator-arbitrator modifies the offer selected in order to meet them.
2003, c. 25, s. 42.
43. If one of the parties does not give the mediator-arbitrator a final offer in accordance with subparagraph 3 of the first paragraph of section 41, the mediator-arbitrator selects the final offer of the other party.
2003, c. 25, s. 43.
44. The decision of the mediator-arbitrator must be drawn up so that it can serve as the collective agreement between the association of employees and the institution. It must contain the wording referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 41 and the wording of the final offer selected by the mediator-arbitrator, corrected, if need be, to meet the criteria set out in the second paragraph of section 42.
Sections 59 and 60 of the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2) apply, with the necessary modifications, to decisions rendered under this section by the mediator-arbitrator.
2003, c. 25, s. 44.
45. The mediator-arbitrator sends a copy of the decision to the parties within the time specified in the first paragraph of section 42. Within five days after the expiry of that time, the mediator-arbitrator files the decision with the Minister of Labour.
Upon receipt of the decision of the mediator-arbitrator, the Minister of Labour notifies the Minister of Health and Social Services, indicating the names of the parties and the bargaining unit concerned.
2003, c. 25, s. 45; 2006, c. 58, s. 71.
46. The decision of the mediator-arbitrator constitutes the collective agreement applicable between the association of employees and the institution for the matters concerned. It comes into force on the date on which two duplicate originals or true copies of the decision are filed with the Minister of Labour.
The decision may not be the subject of negotiations before the expiry of a period of two years, unless the parties decide to amend it before then.
Certain provisions of the decision may take effect on a date subsequent to its coming into force; the effective date must be specified in each case.
2003, c. 25, s. 46; 2006, c. 58, s. 72.
47. The decision of the mediator-arbitrator only has effect with respect to the association of employees and the institution concerned. It may not be raised as a precedent in any other arbitration proceedings arising from this Act; the mediator-arbitrator, at the request of a party or ex officio, dismisses any application or claim based on such a decision.
2003, c. 25, s. 47.
48. For the purposes of this Act, the mediator-arbitrator is vested with the powers provided for in section 76, the first paragraph of section 80, and sections 81 to 88, 91 and 91.1 of the Labour Code (chapter C-27), with the necessary modifications.
2003, c. 25, s. 48.
49. The fees and expenses connected with the appointment and exercise of the functions of the mediator-arbitrator are borne jointly and equally by the institution and the certified association of employees. The amount of the fees and expenses is established in accordance with the rules prescribed in a regulation under section 103 of the Labour Code (chapter C-27).
2003, c. 25, s. 49.
50. Once the clauses defined as being the subject of negotiations at the local or regional level have been negotiated and agreed or determined by the mediator-arbitrator in accordance with this division, the negotiation of the replacement, amendment, addition or repeal of such clauses must be in conformity with the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2).
2003, c. 25, s. 50.
51. If, during the period for determining the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level specified in this division, an institution is affected by an integration of activities or an amalgamation of institutions, negotiation of the clauses and mediation or arbitration to settle a disagreement on the final offers must cease immediately.
From the date on which the new association of employees is certified following the integration or amalgamation, the matters defined as being the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level are again negotiated, in accordance with this division, by the integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation and the new certified association of employees.

TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS
§ 1.  — Application
70. Subdivision 2 does not apply to an institution in which there are fewer than four bargaining units.
2003, c. 25, s. 70.
71. The Minister determines by order the date on which sections 72 to 92 take effect for each institution indicated by the Minister. The Minister also determines by order the date on which sections 88 to 92 take effect for an institution referred to in section 70. Such orders are published in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
2003, c. 25, s. 71.
§ 2.  — Merger of bargaining units
72. For the purposes of this subdivision, a reference in paragraph 1 of section 73, paragraph 2 of section 74, subparagraph 3 of the second paragraph of section 75 or the first paragraph of section 76, 77 or 78 to a certified association of employees or to an association of employees that is certified is also a reference, with the necessary modifications, to an association of employees having filed, within the time specified in the Labour Code (chapter C-27), a petition for certification to represent employees that is still pending on the date section 73 comes into effect for the institution concerned.
2003, c. 25, s. 72.
73. Within 30 days after the date on which this section takes effect for an institution in the social affairs sector whose union representation system, on that date, does not comply with subdivision 1 of Division II, the institution draws up a status report of union representation as it existed in the institution on that date. The status report includes
(1)  a description of each existing bargaining unit and the name of the association of employees certified to represent the employees in that bargaining unit; and
(2)  the names, addresses, social insurance numbers, job titles and job title numbers of all the employees in the institution, including employees who were on leave without pay and employees who were on a recall or standby list to the extent that the latter performed work during the 12 months preceding the date on which this section takes effect for the institution concerned, identifying employees who
(a)  were included in a bargaining unit referred to in paragraph 1;
(b)  did not belong to any bargaining unit because there was no association of employees certified to represent those employees.
2003, c. 25, s. 73.
74. On or before the expiry of the 30 days specified in section 73, the institution
(1)  sends the Minister the information required under paragraph 1 of section 73;
(2)  sends each of the associations of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 73 only the information required under paragraph 2 of that section that concerns employees included from then on in a class of personnel and who belong to a bargaining unit for which the association is already certified, but not the employees’ addresses or social insurance numbers.
2003, c. 25, s. 74.
75. Within 30 days after the expiry of the 30-day time limit specified in section 73, and based on the information referred to in paragraph 2 of that section, the institution identifies any new bargaining unit corresponding to a class of personnel for which an association of employees may eventually be certified in the institution, and prepares a list of the employees to be included in that bargaining unit, with their job titles, addresses and social insurance numbers.
On or before the expiry of those 30 days, the institution
(1)  posts the information required under the first paragraph and a copy of all the information required under section 73, except the employees’ addresses and social insurance numbers, for 20 days at the usual places for posting information in the institution;
(2)  sends the information required under the first paragraph to the Administrative Labour Tribunal, using an information technology medium determined by the Tribunal, and informs the Tribunal, for each class of personnel, of the number of employees represented by a certified association of employees, the number of employees not so represented, and the date on which the period for posting the information ends;
(3)  sends each association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 73 only the information referred to in subparagraph 2 that concerns a class of personnel for which the association is already certified as regards some of the employees to be included in the new bargaining unit, but not the employees’ addresses or social insurance numbers.
2003, c. 25, s. 75; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
76. With respect to a new bargaining unit in the institution, an association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 73 may file a petition with the Administrative Labour Tribunal applying for certification to represent the employees to be included in the bargaining unit, if that association is already certified for some of those employees.
The petition for certification is filed with the Tribunal on or before the one hundred and tenth day after the date on which section 73 takes effect for that institution. A petition filed outside the prescribed time is refused, unless the Tribunal believes circumstances warrant granting the association of employees extra time, which may not however exceed 20 days.
A copy of the petition is notified to the institution, which posts it at the usual places for posting information in the institution.
If the petition is filed by an association of employees that is not certified but is referred to in section 72, the association indicates the Tribunal’s record number that refers to its petition for certification.
2003, c. 25, s. 76; 2015, c. 15, s. 237; I.N. 2016-01-01 (NCCP).
77. The associations of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 73 may form an employee-associations group to apply for certification to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit if one of those associations is already certified for some of those employees. An employee’s membership in an association of employees that is a member of such a group constitutes membership in the group.
For the purposes of this Act and the Labour Code (chapter C-27), such an employee-associations group is deemed to be an association of employees.
2003, c. 25, s. 77.
78. The associations of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 73 may agree to designate one of their number to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit if each of those associations is already certified for some of those employees.
If the associations filed a petition for certification in accordance with section 76, they may agree to have one of their number certified to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, or to merge into a single association to represent those employees.
The agreements are evidenced in writing.
An agreement under the first paragraph is sent to the Administrative Labour Tribunal before the expiry of the 110-day time limit for filing a petition specified in the second paragraph of section 76 or any extension granted by the Tribunal under that paragraph. An agreement under the second paragraph is sent to the Administrative Labour Tribunal within 10 days after the expiry of the applicable time limit.
2003, c. 25, s. 78; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
79. Upon receipt of one or more petitions filed under section 76, the Administrative Labour Tribunal proceeds as follows, subject to section 80:
(1)  if the Tribunal concludes that the petitioning association is the only association to have filed a petition to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, it certifies the association, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(2)  if the Tribunal concludes that the petitioning association, in keeping with the first paragraph of section 78, has obtained the agreement of all the associations of employees referred to in that paragraph that it represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, it certifies the association, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(3)  if the Tribunal concludes that all the petitioning associations agree, in keeping with the second paragraph of section 78, to have one of their number certified to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, it certifies the association, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(4)  if the Tribunal concludes that all the petitioning associations agree, in keeping with the second paragraph of section 78, to merge into a single association of employees, it certifies the association of employees resulting from the merger, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit;
(5)  if the Tribunal concludes that there is more than one association petitioning to represent the employees to be included in a new bargaining unit, it orders the holding of a vote for the employees of the bargaining unit and certifies the association of employees that obtains the greatest number of votes, indicating the class of personnel included in the new bargaining unit.
2003, c. 25, s. 79; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
80. In all cases where at least 40% of the employees in a bargaining unit in the process of being constituted were not represented by an association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 73 on the date section 73 came into effect for the institution concerned, the Administrative Labour Tribunal, before granting an association of employees certification under section 79, ascertains the will of the employees who will be included in a new bargaining unit to be represented by an association of employees, by holding a vote.
The vote may be held simultaneously with a vote under paragraph 5 of section 79.
2003, c. 25, s. 80; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
81. Only an employee duly entered on the list required under the first paragraph of section 75 may participate in a vote ordered by the Administrative Labour Tribunal under paragraph 5 of section 79 or section 80, up to one vote per class of personnel to which the employee belongs. For that purpose, within two days after a request by an association of employees referred to in subparagraph 3 of the second paragraph of section 75, the Tribunal communicates the address of an employee who will be included in a bargaining unit for which the association of employees filed a petition for certification in accordance with section 76.
The only rules governing the conduct of the vote are those determined by the Tribunal for the purposes of this Act. The vote may be held by mail or in any other manner the Tribunal considers appropriate.
2003, c. 25, s. 81; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
82. If, on the expiry of the time limit specified in the second paragraph of section 76, no petition has been filed with the Administrative Labour Tribunal by an association of employees entitled to do so for a class of personnel, the Tribunal notifies the institution concerned and the Minister.
Within 30 days after receipt of that notice, the institution may bring the matter before the Tribunal by means of a petition for the revocation of the association’s certification. If the institution fails to act within that time, the Minister may bring the matter before the Tribunal for the same purpose.
2003, c. 25, s. 82; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
83. Upon receipt of a petition filed under the second paragraph of section 82, the Administrative Labour Tribunal revokes the certification of the association of employees that represented the employees included in a bargaining unit that existed in the institution concerned on the date section 73 came into effect for the institution.
2003, c. 25, s. 83; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
84. The Administrative Labour Tribunal must render its decision concerning a petition filed under section 76 within 150 days after the date on which the petition was filed.
The president of the Tribunal may extend the time limit if the president believes circumstances warrant such a decision.
2003, c. 25, s. 84; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
85. The decision of the Administrative Labour Tribunal is sent to the association of employees newly certified under section 79 and, where applicable, to each of the other petitioning associations, to the association whose accreditation is revoked under section 83, to the institution concerned, and to the Minister.
2003, c. 25, s. 85; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
86. The newly certified association of employees is subrogated by operation of law in all the rights and obligations resulting from a collective agreement to which a certified association of employees it replaces was a party.
2003, c. 25, s. 86.
87. The Administrative Labour Tribunal puts an end to the processing of any other petition that is pending on the date section 73 comes into effect for the institution concerned if it is of the opinion that the petition concerns all or some of the employees of a single class of personnel and has the same subject or the same purposes as the petition filed under section 76 or the second paragraph of section 82.
2003, c. 25, s. 87; 2015, c. 15, s. 237.
§ 3.  — Determination of the first clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level
88. From the date on which the new association of employees is certified, the institution concerned and the association of employees newly certified under section 79 negotiate the matters defined as being the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level by the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2).
The parties have 24 months from the date on which the new association of employees is certified to agree on those clauses. Failing agreement within those 24 months on a matter that is the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level, the institution must, in the ensuing 10 days, request the Minister of Labour to appoint a mediator-arbitrator to settle the disagreement, informing the association of employees of the request.
However, during the first 12 months, failing agreement, the parties may jointly request the Minister of Labour to appoint a mediator-arbitrator to settle the disagreement. On the expiry of the first 12 months, either of the parties may make such a request to the Minister of Labour in the ensuing 12 months, informing the other party of the request.
2003, c. 25, s. 88.
89. Except where the certification of an association of employees is revoked under section 83, and despite section 9, the collective agreement of each certified association of employees referred to in paragraph 1 of section 73, in force on the day before the date on which the new association of employees is certified, and the local arrangements that relate to it continue to apply for employees covered by each of those collective agreements. The integrating institution or the new institution resulting from the amalgamation and the newly certified association of employees may, however, agree to apply the collective agreement of the newly certified association of employees and the local arrangements relating to it to all the employees included in the new bargaining unit.
From the date on which the new association of employees is certified, the collective agreement of the newly certified association of employees and the local arrangements that relate to it apply to the employees who were not represented by a certified association of employees on the day before the date of integration or amalgamation.
As of the date of coming into force of an agreement on a matter negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level, the clauses negotiated and agreed at the national level and the local arrangements regarding that matter cease to apply. The institution and the newly certified association of employees may agree to bring the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level into force on different dates.
The new clauses negotiated and agreed at the national level after the date on which the new association of employees is certified take effect on the date set out in those clauses. The local arrangements relating to the clauses of the previous collective agreement, which are replaced by the new clauses, cease to apply on that date.
2003, c. 25, s. 89.
90. The seniority accumulated by an employee in the institution concerned before the date on which the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level come into force is recognized up to one year per period of 12 months.
With respect to the employees not represented by a certified association of employees, seniority is deemed to have been accumulated according to the provisions of the collective agreement of the newly certified association of employees.
Seniority lists must be posted within 30 days following the date of the end of the pay period that includes the date of coming into force of the clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level. The periods for posting information and the seniority correction procedures set out in the collective agreement determined for the newly certified association of employees under section 89 apply.
However, the institution and the newly certified association of employees may agree on a date for integrating seniority lists that is earlier than the date provided in the third paragraph for the matters negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level that are the subject of an agreement.
2003, c. 25, s. 90.
91. Where a request for the appointment of a mediator-arbitrator is made to the Minister of Labour in accordance with section 88, the parties may jointly recommend a person to the Minister for appointment as mediator-arbitrator.
As soon as possible, the Minister of Labour appoints the person recommended as mediator-arbitrator or, if no joint recommendation is made, a person whose name appears on a list prepared for that purpose after consultation with the Minister of Health and Social Services.
2003, c. 25, s. 91.
92. For the purposes of this subdivision, sections 38 and 40 to 51 apply, with the necessary modifications.
In the case of an institution referred to in section 70, where a provision referred to in section 88, 89 or 91 refers to the date on which the new association of employees is certified, that provision must be read as referring to the effective date indicated in the Minister’s order made under section 71. Where a provision referred to in any of sections 88 to 91 refers to the new association of employees, that provision must be read as referring to the association of employees that exists in the institution on the day before the date on which those sections take effect.
2003, c. 25, s. 92.
DIVISION VI
FINAL PROVISIONS
93. From 18 December 2003, the matters listed in Schedule A.1 of the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2), enacted by section 67 of this Act, and defined as being the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level may no longer be the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the national level.
2003, c. 25, s. 93.
94. This Act does not apply to pharmacists, clinical biochemists or medical physicists referred to in section 3 of the Hospital Insurance Act (chapter A-28) or section 432 of the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2), or to residents in medicine referred to in section 19.1 of the Health Insurance Act (chapter A-29).
