Therefore, in the event of a local strike, all services within the meaning of Article 11 of the national service and maintenance contract will continue to be performed. This is NOT limited to emergency service work or scheduled work in pm, but to all the work necessary to keep a building in operation. These include all inspection, service, maintenance, repair, commissioning, testing, balancing, modifying and replacement systems for all mechanical, refrigeration and remediation systems covered in paragraph 11. This also applies to all refrigeration work carried out in accordance with Article XXV of the agreement. In accordance with Article 64 of the National Service and Maintenance Contract, the fact that each union or employee of sub-signatory contractors strikes, slows down, picketing or interferes in the operation of an employer constitutes a violation of the agreement. Similarly, it is an offence for each undersigned to participate in a work slowdown or exclude employees covered by the national service and maintenance contract. Such a violation of these provisions may lead to the immediate filing of a complaint (stage 4b of the appeal procedure) with the possibility of claims being settled or claims or damages assessed. When a complaint is to be filed: if there is disagreement between the employer or a group of employers and a local union or the AU on the intent, service, application or compliance of the terms of the national service and maintenance contract. A signatory to the national service and maintenance contract is not required to sign a local agreement for work within the scope of the agreement. Working conditions and working conditions set out in the national agreement prevail over the provisions established on the ground.

However, signatory contractors are bound by salaries, fringes, benefits and other contributions under the local agreement. Although they are not required to sign a local agreement, signatory contractors must sign the local trust agreement in writing. In June 1970, the association took steps to set up a commission of inquiry to verify the feasibility of negotiating national agreements with several international construction unions. In 1971, these efforts brought maintenance agreements to life on the Policy Committee. The members of the supervisory committee are appointed by the Joint UA/MSCA Labor Committee, with contributions from the local MCA-Exec and the international representative. The committee consists of an equal number of local contractors for the management of the company and local business leaders for the work. All local boards within the jurisdiction, local training coordinators, staff officers and the AU international representative, who are associated with the MSCA, should only be invited to each meeting in an advisory capacity. The committee elects its own chairman and secretary. The Chair is responsible for setting up meetings and notifying all committee members. The secretary is responsible for the preservation of minutes and notes.

These positions are expected to pass between management and work each year.
