42. Following a petition for certification or for reconsideration or cancellation of certification, the labour commissioner seized of the matter or a labour commissioner designated to that effect by the labour commissioner general may order the suspension of negotiations and of the delay for exercising the right to strike or to a lock-out and prevent the renewal of a collective agreement.
In such case, the conditions of employment specified in the collective agreement remain in force and section 60 applies until the decision of the labour commissioner seized of the petition for certification, reconsideration or cancellation of certification is rendered.
Such a decision does not terminate a matter.
