Together, Bills 8 and 30 limited the conditions of competition under which unions and employers can negotiate a collective agreement. Both parties should be aware of these changes, as the delicate balance of collective bargaining continues in B.C. 72 (1) In the event of a dispute after the commencement of collective bargaining, the President of Himself, or at the request of one of the parties to the dispute, 108 may make a decision on a matter that is not provided for in the collective agreement or that derogates from the provisions of the collective agreement, the appointment is binding on the parties to the dispute or, unlike for a maximum period of thirty days. 10. If the certification of a union as a negotiator of a unit is revoked under a provision of this Code, no other union may apply for certification as a negotiator for workers within that unit until the expiry of a period determined by the board of directors. However, it has the potential to increase labour costs for employers in a way that might not be expected in the final rounds of negotiations (or at the time of tendering for projects). This change could also be a boon for unionized workers who are currently not entitled to the CFC`s daily or weekly overtime provisions due to collective bargaining. 135 (1) At the request of a party or ex officio, the Chamber shall at any time submit a copy of a decision or order of the board of directors under this Code or a collective agreement in a office of the Supreme Court. 36 Where collective bargaining in respect of a business is governed by Canadian law and that business or part of it is sold, leased, assigned or otherwise assigned and subject to the laws of British Columbia, section 35 applies and the purchaser, lessee or acquirer is bound by a collective agreement in force at the time of the assignment. 54 1.
Where an employer introduces or intends to introduce a measure, policy, practice or change that affects the working conditions or job security of a significant number of workers covered by a collective agreement, 57 (1) A worker bound by a collective agreement entered into before or after the coming into force of this Code may not strike during the term of the collective agreement, and a person may not declare or authorize the strike of such workers during that term of office. 2. By way of derogation from paragraph 1 (c) and in so far as the party to the collective agreement does not obtain certification, the rights and obligations conferred or imposed on the collective party by the collective agreement, in so far as that trade union is concerned, shall be transferred or imposed on the certified bargaining union. . . .
