130.6. An officer who has completed his probation period with an employer, or an officer on parental leave or disability leave, shall make a written complaint to his employer in the case of dismissal, non-renewal of engagement, termination of engagement, suspension without pay or demotion, if he believes the decision was not made in accordance with the provisions of sections 129 to 129.5, or if he contests the validity of the decision. However, there is no appeal from the layoff of an officer following termination of the employment relationship as a result of a decision made by the employer pursuant to Chapter 5.
The complaint must reach the employer or be mailed no later than 45 days after receipt of the notice stipulated in 129.4 or the date of the end of employment, whichever is later. The officer shall also send a copy of the complaint within the same period to the officers’ association of which he is a member.
An arbitrator shall be appointed in accordance with the procedure stipulated in section 130.2. The arbitrator shall proceed in accordance with section 130.3.
