176.13. Every collective agreement binding upon a municipality that ceased to exist on amalgamation expires on the date provided for its expiry or on the date of the first anniversary of the coming into force of the order, whichever is earlier.
Where a collective agreement expires on the latter date, the only conditions of employment to be maintained pursuant to section 59 of the Labour Code (chapter C-27) are the conditions of employment in force on that date. However, the Government may by order prescribe that the conditions of employment of any collective agreement it determines, in force on the date of coming into force of the amalgamation order or the maintenance of which, on that date, is provided for in section 59 of the Labour Code (chapter C-27), continue to apply, as of that date, to the employees bound by the collective agreement, but in the territory of the municipality described in the amalgamation order.
