111.26. Subject to the Sustainable Forest Development Act (chapter A-18.1), the logging operator or the owner of any land where logging operations are carried on must allow any representative of an association of employees holding a permit issued by the Tribunal in accordance with the regulations made for such purpose under section 138 to enter on the land and to have access to the logging camp. The operator must supply the representative with food and shelter at the price fixed for the employees by regulation under the Act respecting labour standards (chapter N-1.1).
On the written application of an employee, the logging operator shall advance to the employee the sum required as first dues to an association of employees, provided that the employee has that amount to his credit.
The written authorization given by an employee to withhold from his salary the above amount constitutes a payment within the meaning of subparagraph c of the first paragraph of section 36.1; the employer must remit to the association indicated, within the following month, the amounts so withheld accompanied with a memorandum of the list of names.
This section does not apply to logging operations carried on by a farm producer on his own property.
