Ua National Maintenance Agreement

The standard working day consists of eight consecutive hours and the standard work week is forty hours per week, five consecutive days, from Monday to Saturday. A standard work day/week should not vary from day to day or week, except by mutual agreement. In some situations where work cannot be done during normal working time or on the basis of client needs, a flexible work plan may be established by mutual agreement between the employer, the worker and the local union. The non-strike, non-lock-out provisions of the national service and maintenance contract are an extremely important and necessary condition of the agreement. The service sector is a customer-oriented company that ensures the comfort, safety and health of all occupants of the building. Therefore, customers need to be sure that their service provider is always available to meet the needs of construction systems. If a service provider was not able to respond to its customers,. B, for example, because of a strike, would result in the immediate loss of that customer (and the likelihood that he would never return) and the loss of hours and jobs for our service technicians. A signatory to the national service and maintenance contract is not required to sign a local agreement for work within the scope of the agreement. Working conditions and working conditions set out in the national agreement prevail over the provisions established on the ground. However, signatory contractors are bound by salaries, fringes, benefits and other contributions under the local agreement. Although they are not required to sign a local agreement, signatory contractors must sign the local trust agreement in writing.

Therefore, in the event of a local strike, all services within the meaning of Article 11 of the national service and maintenance contract will continue to be performed. This is NOT limited to emergency service work or scheduled work in pm, but to all the work necessary to keep a building in operation. These include all inspection, service, maintenance, repair, commissioning, testing, balancing, modifying and replacement systems for all mechanical, refrigeration and remediation systems covered in paragraph 11. This also applies to all refrigeration work carried out in accordance with Article XXV of the agreement. In accordance with Article 64 of the National Service and Maintenance Contract, the fact that each union or employee of sub-signatory contractors strikes, slows down, picketing or interferes in the operation of an employer constitutes a violation of the agreement. Similarly, it is an offence for each undersigned to participate in a work slowdown or exclude employees covered by the national service and maintenance contract. Such a violation of these provisions may lead to the immediate filing of a complaint (stage 4b of the appeal procedure) with the possibility of claims being settled or claims or damages assessed. Wages and all contributions or deductions for ancillary plans or funds, union dues, leave, leave, sick pay, the International Training Fund (ITF) and Industry Promotion Funds are paid at the rate set out in the local agreement that covers the service, or as outlined in Calendar A for that jurisdiction.

In the event of a conflict between the local agreement and the national agreement, the national agreement prevails. Signatory employers are not required to sign local service agreements, but may be asked to sign the local trust agreement. The volume of work under the agreement includes all IGC and remediation work required to effectively operate existing facilities and systems at these facilities. This work may include inspection, service, maintenance, commissioning, testing, balancing, adaptation, repair, modification and replacement of mechanical, refrigeration and remediation facilities, and components, including associated fittings and pipe controllers.
