Subject terms:

Revocation of certification - application by employer under subsection 43(1) of the Public Service Staff Relations Act for revocation of the certification granted to Local 864 for all the employees in the operational category at CFB Chatham - application made on the ground that there were no longer any employees in the bargaining unit - bargaining agent did not dispute the fact that there were no employees in the bargaining unit, but objected to the application alleging that certification was not only for employees but also for the location and that the certification should continue in the event that the facility should re-open in the future - Board referred to definition of "bargaining unit" in section 2 of the Act and concluded that since there were no longer any employees there could be no bargaining unit for which Local 864 could act as bargaining agent.

Certificate revoked.
