(1)  each certified association representing employees shall designate one member;
(2)  the employees not represented by a certified association shall designate one member;
(3)  if the employees represented by one certified association or the employees not represented by a certified association form the majority of the employees concerned by the plan, that certified association or those non-represented employees shall designate the majority of the members representing the employees.
The employer may grant a certified association referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph or the employees referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph the right to designate more than one member.
