14.02 It must be realized that a camp and equipment costing many thousands of dollars and, in some cases, in excess of a million dollars will soon deteriorate if subjected to the whims of vandals without any measure of control over such situations.

14.04 ABTC - CLR-A Camp Review Committees on construction projects are, for the most part, playing a very vital role in the Labour/Management relationship which, through cooperation of both Parties, are able to make a Building Tradesman's life away from home as pleasant as possible under the circumstances.
14.05 Their job is no small task. Therefore, with this in mind the following Camp Regulations have been set forth to be administered by the Local Camp Committee who shall have full authority to enforce these regulations.
1. All acts of vandalism shall be investigated and the responsible party or Parties are to be exposed and such acts, together with the names of the party or Parties, permanently recorded with the ABTC and the ABTC - CLR-A Camp Review Committee. Repeated offences may result in expulsion from
camps under the jurisdiction of the ABTC - CLR-A Camp Review Committee.

4. Occupants of the camp shall be cooperative with the Bullcooks in maintaining cleanliness of the rooms.
5. No resident of the camp shall complain directly to an employee of the camp or catering staff. If a resident finds he has a grievance he shall first present it, in writing, to his Job Xxxxxxx as per Section 12.04, Grievance Procedure.
6. Occupants of the camp shall show consideration for their neighbours in respect to the playing of radios or television sets or noisy conversation after 11:00 p.m.
7. Parties that disturb other occupants of the camp are prohibited.
8. No occupant of the camp shall utilize laundry facilities that are located in the same building as the living quarters after 11:00 p.m.
9. Fighting or violence of any sort in any part of the camp will result in instant dismissal. The dismissal will be subject to review under Article XII Camp Grievance Procedure.
10. Any camp occupant who is abusive to any member of the Local Camp Committee or Catering staff in the conduct of his duties shall appear before the Local Camp Committee to account for his behaviour. Refusal to appear before the Committee may result in instant dismissal.
11. The Local Camp Committee shall be authorized to summon any resident of the camp to appear before them to deal with grievances raised by the Camp Management.
12. No occupant of the camp may retain in his personal possession any firearms or dangerous weapons on the camp site.
13. In the event of a lost room key the camp resident will pay the replacement cost of three dollars ($3.00) before a new one is issued.
