Should any Article, Section, or portion thereof, of this Agreement, be held unlawful and unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision of the court shall apply only to the specific Article, Section, or portion thereof, directly specified in the decision, and all other valid provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Upon the issuance of such a decision, the parties agree immediately to negotiate regarding the invalidated Article, Section, or portion thereof.

Any portion or provisions of this Agreement thus delayed or withheld shall become effective and be implemented at such time, in such amounts, and for such periods, retroactively and prospectively, as will be permitted by law at any time during the life of this Agreement or any extension thereof.
