Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act

Version of section 70 from 2017-06-19 to 2023-01-25:

Marginal note:Review of structure of bargaining units

  •  (1) If the Board reviews the structure of one or more bargaining units, it must, in determining whether a group of employees constitutes a unit appropriate for collective bargaining, have regard to the employer’s classification of persons and positions, including the occupational groups or subgroups established by the employer.

  • Marginal note:Unit co-extensive with occupational groups

    (2) The Board must establish bargaining units that are co-extensive with the occupational groups or subgroups established by the employer, unless doing so would not permit satisfactory representation of the employees to be included in a particular bargaining unit and, for that reason, such a unit would not be appropriate for collective bargaining.

  • Marginal note:Limitation

    (3) Despite subsection (1), the Board is not permitted to review the structure of the bargaining unit determined under section 238.14.
