The parties may in addition agree on conditions of employment incidental to the reassignment of employees.
An agreement entered into under this section may not provide conditions of employment that entail higher costs than those entailed by the application of the conditions of employment applicable on 20 December 2000, or increase the staff.

2000, c. 56, Sch. III, s. 120.
121. The transition committee shall also prepare any plan for the reassignment of the officers and employees of the municipalities referred to in section 5 who are not represented by a certified association, as well as the procedure relating to the rights of and remedies available to an employee who believes he or she has been wronged as a consequence of the application of the reassignment plan.
