Collective agreements

Application of the collective agreements is one of the basic mandates of the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ). The CCQ takes a number of actions within its field of application to ensure respect for the collective agreements and the provisions of the Act Respecting Labour Relations, Vocational Training, and Workforce Management in the Construction Industry (Act R-20): inspection, criminal and civil lawsuits, interpretation of the collective agreements and the field of application of the Act, management of jurisdictional conflicts, and other areas.

To this are added activities related to union membership, recognition of the representativeness of associations, and administration of all compensation funds that the parties deem necessary to ensure that workers’ salaries will be paid.

To fulfil this mandate and to prevent misunderstandings in the interpretation of collective agreements and the field of application of the law, the CCQ favours preventive conciliation with all actors concerned in order to resolve disputes at the source and ensure uniform interpretation.

All activities linked to application of the collective agreements are essential both to ensure fair competition among employers and to protect working conditions for the labour force.
