37. The discipline committee of the Association has the power to reprimand, or impose a penalty for wrongful actions, omissions or wrongful conduct of a holder of a taxi driver’s permit, whether or not the permit holder is a member of the Association. The discipline committee may set time limits and conditions to remedy the situation. It may also suspend the right of a person to carry on the occupation of taxi driver.
In every case, the committee must give the person whose action, omission or conduct is to blame the right to present observations within reasonable time. The holder of a taxi driver’s permit whose right to carry on his or her occupation has been suspended may not carry on the occupation of taxi driver while the suspension lasts. In each case, the Association must, for the purposes of section 31, notify the Société or, where applicable, the municipal or supramunicipal authority that issued the taxi driver’s permit.
If the holder of a taxi driver’s permit is not satisfied with a decision of the discipline committee, the holder may apply in writing for arbitration within 10 days of the decision. In such a case, the notice referred to in the second paragraph is cancelled or suspended, according to the decision of the arbitrators, until the date on which the arbitration award is homologated. Articles 940.1 to 940.5 and 941 to 947 of the Code of Civil Procedure (chapter C-25) apply to arbitration under this section.
