The transition committee shall, within the time prescribed by the Minister of Municipal Affairs, Regions and Land Occupancy, agree with all the certified associations within the meaning of the Labour Code (chapter C‐27) representing the employees in the employment of the municipalities referred to in section 5 and of the urban community on the procedure for the reassignment of those employees as members of the personnel of the city, and on the rights of and remedies available to an employee who believes he or she has been wronged as a consequence of the application of that procedure.
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.
The Minister may grant additional time at the request of the committee or of a certified association.
The provisions concerning the application of the reassignment process provided for in the applicable conditions of employment, or, where there is no such process, the provisions that allow employees to be assigned a position or a place of employment, constitute the employee reassignment procedure.
