Notices of Unit Agreement, Voluntary Recognition, Disclaimer and Revocation of Certification

An employer and a union may agree on the jobs that should be included in a bargaining unit and will file an "Agreement on Appropriate Unit" with the MLRB. Notices of these agreements are provided to the employer for posting in the workplace. A "Unit Modification" is a form of unit agreement.

An employer may voluntarily recognize a union as the bargaining agent of an established unit rather than have the MLRB conduct an election. Notices of the "Voluntary Recognition" are sent to the employer for posting in the workplace.

A "Disclaimer" is when a bargaining agent no longer wants to represent a bargaining unit and a "Revocation of Certification" can occur when there has been no activity in a bargaining unit for several years. Both of these types of notices are posted at the workplace, too.

Links to various notices are provided below. Notices are archived after one year.
