Interpretation grievance

In accordance with section 62 of Act R-20, the employer and union associations and the Association des entrepreneurs en construction du Québec (AECQ) may use arbitration to resolve difficulties posed by interpretation of a clause in the collective agreement.

However, use of the interpretation grievance is not applicable to all clauses in the collective agreement covered by section 61 of Act R-20, hich concerns classification of jobs, pay, and duration of work. The regular grievance-settlement procedure applies in these cases.

The interpretation grievance must be authorized by the CCQ according to the procedure set out in each collective agreement.
