27. Every decision by which a public transit operating authority makes a financial commitment for a period extending beyond the date preceding the date set by the Government for the coming into force of section 3 of the Act to modify mainly the organization and governance of shared transportation in the Montréal metropolitan area (chapter O-7.3) for expenditures related to the functions conferred on the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain or the Réseau de transport métropolitain must be authorized by the committee.
Any collective agreement or contract of employment entered into or amended by a public transit operating authority must be authorized by the committee if the effect of the agreement or contract is to increase expenditures relating to the employees’ remuneration and employee benefits.
The committee may, at all times, adopt rules to wholly or partially exempt a public transit operating authority from the obligation to obtain the authorization required under the first paragraph. Such rules may, in particular, define monetary thresholds, classes of contracts and periods.
The committee may, exceptionally, approve a decision, collective agreement or contract of employment regarding which an authorization is required under the first or second paragraph. The approval of the committee is deemed to constitute such an authorization.
