Nothing in this article shall be construed to infringe on, contradict, preempt or otherwise conflict with the valid provisions of any collective bargaining agreement or to otherwise abridge or infringe on the rights and responsibilities of all parties in the collective bargaining process to negotiate collective bargaining agreements.
