Marginal note:Previous agreements
67 (1) On notice in writing to the Tribunal by the parties to any agreement concerning the terms of engagement of artists that is in effect on the coming into force of this section, the terms and conditions of the agreement that are not inconsistent with this Part shall continue to bind the parties to the agreement for any period that the Tribunal may determine on application, or until the agreement expires or a scale agreement is entered into, as if the agreement were a scale agreement under this Part, and each party to the agreement shall be treated as if the party were an artists’ association or a producer.
Marginal note:Request for certification
(2) An artists’ association may apply for certification at any time before the termination of an agreement referred to in subsection (1), and may issue a notice at any time after certification, notwithstanding subsection 31(2), requiring the other party to begin bargaining in order to renew or revise the agreement or to enter into a scale agreement.
(3) The application for certification and subsequent negotiation of a scale agreement by an artists’ association certified in the circumstances described in subsection (2) are deemed not to be unfair practices contrary to sections 50 and 51.
Marginal note:Effect of scale agreement on previous agreements
(4) A scale agreement entered into under this Part revokes all agreements entered into before the coming into force of this section in so far as the scale agreement applies to the artists and producers in the sector in respect of which the association is certified.
