1985, c. 12, s. 59.
60. In matters defined as being the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level, an association of employees and an employer may, at all times, negotiate and agree on the replacement, amendment, addition or repeal of a clause of the collective agreement.
In no case, however, may any negotiation under the first paragraph give rise to a dispute.

61. Any agreement made pursuant to section 60 shall be filed in the office of the labour commissioner general in accordance with the first paragraph of section 72 of the Labour Code (chapter C-27). It shall take effect in accordance with provisions set forth in the second paragraph of that section.
In no case may the agreement be the subject of negotiations before the expiry of two years, unless the parties decide to amend it before the lapse of that term.
1985, c. 12, s. 61.
62. If no agreement is reached on a matter that is the subject of clauses negotiated and agreed at the local or regional level, one party may request the Minister of Labour to appoint a mediator-arbitrator in view of the settlement of the disagreement.

64. If a disagreement still subsists sixty days after the appointment of the mediator-arbitrator, the parties may, in common agreement, request the mediator-arbitrator to rule on the subject of the disagreement. If the mediator-arbitrator is then of opinion that a settlement is not likely to be reached by the parties, he shall rule on the question and inform the parties of his decision.
The decision of the mediator-arbitrator is deemed to be an agreement within the meaning of section 60.
1985, c. 12, s. 64.

1985, c. 12, s. 67.
68. Where a clause ceases to have effect by reason of the application of section 67, the parties shall negotiate in view of its replacement.
