142. The pension committee must, after giving the person who applied for review the opportunity to present observations, dispose of the application without delay and notify its decision to the person.
The decision must include the reasons on which it is based.
However, if no decision is made because opinions are equally divided, the decision of Retraite Québec is deemed maintained and the application for review is referred for decision to the arbitrator.
The pension committee shall notify the persons concerned without delay, and the provisions applicable to an application for arbitration apply with the necessary changes. The committee shall send the employee’s or beneficiary’s application for review to the arbitrator within the time prescribed in such provisions.
