3. The granting of leave without pay under an agreement intended to reduce certain costs arising from his conditions of employment shall not result in the reduction of the service or salary used for the purposes of one of the pension plans referred to in section 1.
To that end, a person’s service is the service which would have been credited to him and his pensionable salary is the pensionable salary which he would have received, had such leave not been granted. Contributions shall be paid to Retraite Québec in accordance with the provisions of the pension plan in question. The same applies to any contributory amounts that must be paid by employers.
