It may be made at any time prior to such filing. The order must be published in the Gazette officielle du Québec and the Tribunal shall inform the parties thereof.
From the date indicated therein, the order suspends the exercise of the right to strike until the certified association concerned meets the requirements of sections 111.0.18 and 111.0.23.
