58. Every cooperative or professional association of purchasers, carriers or other persons bound by a plan may apply to the Régie for certification as representative of the persons interested in the marketing of a product contemplated by the plan or a class of such persons.
If the Board considers an association sufficiently representative of such interested persons, it may grant it certification by an order determining the interested persons or the class of interested persons such association may so represent.
Such association then represents all such interested persons for the purposes of negotiation or agreement with the board or, where applicable, conciliation or arbitration under this act.
