Marginal note:Proceedings prohibited
30. No order is to be made, no process is to be entered into and no proceeding is to be taken in court
(a) to question the appointment of the arbitrator; or
(b) to review, prohibit or restrain any proceeding or decision of the arbitrator.
Marginal note:New collective agreement not precluded
31. Nothing in this Part precludes the employer and the union from entering into a new collective agreement at any time before the arbitrator makes a decision and, if they do so, the arbitrator’s duties under this Part cease as of the day on which the new collective agreement is entered into.
New Collective Agreement
Marginal note:New collective agreement
32. (1) 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 and binding on the parties beginning on the day on which it is made. However, that Part applies in respect of the new collective agreement as if it had been entered into under that Part.
Marginal note:Coming into effect of provisions
(2) The new collective agreement may provide that any of its provisions are effective and binding on a day that is before or after the day on which the new collective agreement becomes effective and binding.
(3) Nothing in this Part is to be construed so as to limit or restrict the rights of the parties to agree to amend any provision of the new collective agreement, other than a provision relating to its term, and to give effect to the amendment.
33. All costs incurred by Her Majesty in right of Canada relating to the appointment of an arbitrator and the performance of an arbitrator’s duties under this Act are debts due to Her Majesty in right of Canada and may be recovered as such, in any court of competent jurisdiction, in equal parts from, in the case of an appointment under Part 1, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and the employer, and in the case of an appointment under Part 2, the Air Canada Pilots Association and the employer.
34. (1) An individual who contravenes any provision of this Act is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction and is liable, for each day or part of a day during which the offence continues, to a fine of
(a) not more than $50,000 if the individual was acting in the capacity of an officer or representative of the employer, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers or the Air Canada Pilots Association when the offence was committed; or
(b) not more than $1,000 in any other case.
Marginal note:Employer or union
(2) If the employer, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers or the Air Canada Pilots Association contravenes any provision of this Act, it is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction and is liable, for each day or part of a day during which the offence continues, to a fine of not more than $100,000.
