 (3) one member representing the pensioners under any of the pension plans administered by the Commission; and

 (4) five independent members.

Members.

The members referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph are appointed after consultation with the unions and associations referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 164 of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) or the associations referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 196.3 of the Act respecting the Pension Plan of Management Personnel (chapter R-12.1), depending on the employees represented.

A member of the board may not be a member of the pension committee of a pension plan administered by the Commission.

Restrictions.

Independent members may not

 (1) be in the employ of the Commission, the Government or a body whose employees are members of a pension plan administered by the Commission or have been in such employ in the three years preceding appointment to office, or be in the employ of or be an officer of an association of employees or an association of managers representing those employees or have been in such employ or been such an officer during that period; or

 (2) have an immediate family member who is a senior officer of the Commission.

Policy.

2006, c. 49, s. 12.

Conflict of interest.

If such an interest devolves to the board member, including by succession or gift, it must be renounced or disposed of with dispatch.

Conflict of interest.

Any other member of the board who has a direct or indirect interest in a body, enterprise or association that places the member's personal interests in conflict with the Commission's interests must disclose it in writing to the chair of the board and abstain from participating in any discussion or decision involving the body, enterprise or association. The member must also withdraw from a meeting for the duration of a discussion or vote on such a matter.

2006, c. 49, s. 16.

Member sued by third party.

17. If a member of the board of directors is sued by a third party for an act done in the exercise of the functions of office, the Commission assumes the member's defence and pays any damages awarded as compensation, unless the member committed a gross fault or a personal fault separable from those functions.

Penal or criminal proceedings.

In penal or criminal proceedings, however, the Commission pays the defence costs of a member of the board only if the member was discharged or acquitted or if the Commission judges that the member acted in good faith.

2006, c. 49, s. 17.

Member sued by Commission.
