28. If the Minister modifies a territory for which a home childcare providers association has been recognized or has filed an application for recognition, the Minister notifies the association or associations concerned in writing.
The recognized association continues to represent the home childcare providers of the original territory until the Commission rules on the representativeness of the association given the new territory determined by the Minister.
Upon such ruling, the Commission may
(1) grant or amend a recognition; or
(2) recognize the home childcare providers association whose membership comprises an absolute majority of the home childcare providers operating in the new territory, or hold a secret ballot under section 14 and grant recognition to the association that obtains the most votes in accordance with that section.
Despite the second paragraph of section 25, the group agreement that is binding on the association recognized for the new territory applies, as of the date on which it is recognized, to the home childcare providers operating in the new territory.
The Commission revokes the recognition of any home childcare providers association that no longer meets the conditions set out in this Act.
