5.2

This Agreement may only be modified or waived through a written agreement between the College and the Union.

5.3

The parties (CNM, the Union and bargaining unit employees) will abide by the conditions of this Agreement and all other CNM policies, rules, regulations, and practices. CNM reserves the right to amend said policies, rules, regulations and practices so long as such amendment does not specifically conflict with any provision of this Agreement. College policies, rules, regulations and practices other than this Agreement are not subject to the grievance procedure contained in this Agreement.

If this Agreement is silent on a particular issue it shall be considered a retained management right and is not subject to the grievance procedure contained in this Agreement. The parties acknowledge that this does not prohibit the Union from raising issues covered by these policies in negotiations for a successor agreement, or in the Faculty/Management Committee during the term of this Agreement.

Non-compliance with the provisions of this Agreement shall be considered a violation of College policy.
