CBA Article 45

ARTICLE 45 ENTIRE AGREEMENT 

45.1 This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and any past practice or past agreement between the parties – whether written or oral – is null and void, unless specifically preserved in this Agreement. 

45.2 With regard to WAC’s 356 and 357, this Agreement preempts all subjects addressed, in whole or in part, by its provisions. 

45.3 This Agreement supersedes specific provisions of agency policies with which it conflicts. 

45.4 During the negotiations of the Agreement, each party had the unlimited right and opportunity to make demands and proposals with respect to any subject or matter appropriate for collective bargaining. Therefore, each party voluntarily and unqualifiedly waives the right and shall not be obligated to bargain collectively, during the term of this Agreement, with respect to any subject or matter referred to or covered in this Agreement, or with respect to any subject not specifically referred to or covered in this Agreement, even though such subjects or matters may not have been within the knowledge or contemplation of either of the parties at the time they negotiated this Agreement. The parties further agree, however, that this Agreement may be amended by the mutual consent of the parties, in writing, at any time during its term.
