Article 25: No Strike, Slowdown or Lockout

Collective Bargaining Agreement for Maintenance and Operations


The Union agrees that it and the employees in this bargaining unit will not encourage, support, instigate or participate in a strike or slowdown.


The parties agree that in the event of a strike or slowdown, the employees who encouraged, supported, instigated or participated in the strike or slowdown may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of their employment with the Employer.

If the Employer's Labor Board determines that the Union caused, instigated, encouraged or supported an employee strike, walkout, or slowdown, the Union may be decertified as the exclusive representative and shall be barred from serving as the exclusive representative of any bargaining unit of employees for a period of not less than one (1) year.


The College shall not cause, instigate, or engage in a employee lockout. If the Union determines that the College causes, instigates, or engages in a lockout, the employees affected by a lockout may apply for injunctive relief to end the lockout.
