111.9. (1) A committee on the maintenance of health services and social services in the event of a labour dispute is established by the chief judge of the Court before the beginning of the negotiations. This committee is entrusted with informing the public on the prevailing situation in the matters of agreements, union lists and maintenance of essential services in the event of a labour dispute.
(2) This committee is composed of at least five and not over seven members appointed by the chief judge of the Court, after consultation with the Commission des droits de la personne, the Association des conseils de médecins et dentistes du Québec Inc., the Comité provincial des malades and other persons or agencies.
(3) The committee may establish regional and local committees. It may, in addition, require the services of experts to report to it on the maintenance of health services and social services in the event of a labour dispute. The choice of these experts must be ratified by the chief judge of the Court.
(4) The Government fixes the salary or, as the case may be, the additional salaries, allowances or fees of the members of the committee and of the members of the regional or local committees.
The moneys required for that purpose are taken out of the consolidated revenue fund.
(5) The committee is abolished by the Government after obtaining the advice of the chief judge of the Court. The Minister must table before the National Assembly, within fifteen days of the decision of the Government, the advice of the chief judge of the Court and the order in council ordering the abolition of the said committee. If the National Assembly is not in session, that tabling takes place within fifteen days after resumption.
