123. No notice of negotiation required under section 52 of the Labour Code (chapter C-27) may be given before the date of the Administrative Labour Tribunal’s decision under section 122. Despite any contrary provision of the Labour Code, the right to strike or to a lock-out is only acquired 30 days after the Tribunal renders its decision or, if a notice of negotiation is given under section 52.1 of that Code before the expiry of that time, within 30 days following the notice.
No certification may be applied for before the Tribunal renders its decision by an association that, on 31 May 2017, is not certified to represent the employees referred to in section 120. The time limits prescribed in paragraphs b.1 to c of section 22 of the Labour Code must be calculated from the date of that decision.
