If the collective agreement between the worker ends or the worker leaves the union: the general conclusion that can be made is that the tariffs reflect the heavier workload for the parties negotiating employment contracts, whether they are collective agreements negotiated by unions or collective agreements or even individual negotiations. This mandate refers to provisions of the CEC Act that allow the employer to take collective action against a worker when negotiating individual employment agreements, and that is why individuals can seek advice on their rights and procedures. Mr. McIntyre, Vice-President of the Commission, examined whether the negotiating costs collected under a certified agreement (the ETU agreements mentioned above) were contrary to the provisions of the EAC Freedom of Association Act (FOA). The foa provisions of Part XA of the WR Act prevent a person from being compelled to join or prevent the union in question. Labour Counsel (EA) has a special role to play in investigating Offences of Part XA [WR Act s.83BB (1) (f)] In 1999, the EA raised objections to tariff clauses at the time of authentication of the ETU agreements. If an agreement was in compliance, the EA argued for the removal of these “offensive” clauses. The other employees are employed under collective agreements and most of them should be under federal jurisdiction. However, up to 10% of the workers covered may be covered by non-union agreements, which probably do not include the salaries of trade unionists.

There are only 1.485 million employees among the 13,598 federal wage agreements that are in effect as of March 31, 2002, according to Federal Enterprise Bargaining Marcher 2002 trends. Employment has increased under past contracts. The data indicate that current employment contracts do not increase in terms of coverage. The Federal Court of Justice has dealt with the issues relating to Dener`s rights of refusal, which are brought to his attention in the minutes of appeals and the labour dispute.
