NEW COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT

14. (1) Subject to section 15 and despite anything in Part I of the Canada Labour Code, the arbitrator’s decision constitutes a new collective agreement between the employer and the union that is effective beginning on the day on which it is made and that binds the parties until January 31, 2015. However, that Part applies in respect of the new collective agreement as if it had been entered into under that Part.
