Article XXVII: Savings


If any provisions of this Agreement are held to be contrary to law by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provisions will not be deemed valid and subsisting except to the extent permitted by law, but all other provisions will continue in full force and effect.

Should a provision or application be deemed invalid, as described in the above paragraph, the District shall re-institute any benefit reduced or eliminated to the extent allowable under law, not to exceed the limitations set forth in this Agreement.

Moreover, the Parties shall meet by mutual agreement after such court decision to renegotiate the provision or provisions affected.
