65. A party may present to the Labour Court at Montréal or at Québec a motion of recusation, with notification of three days served upon the other party and the person whose recusation is requested. At the expiry of such period, a judge of the Court shall decide on the motion unless the person whose recusation is requested has consented by a written declaration filed in the office of the Court, to recuse himself.
From the service of the motion of recusation and until it has been decided, the arbitration officer must suspend the investigation on the grievance of which he is seized.
If the recusation is maintained, the arbitration officer shall no longer be seized of such grievance; if it is dismissed, the arbitration officer may also refuse to hear such grievance.
Any vacancy created by the voluntary withdrawal or by the recusation pronounced by the Court shall be filled in accordance with the procedure laid down for the original appointment.
