Section 3-4. Term of office for safety representatives

Safety representatives are elected for two years at a time. If a safety representative leaves the undertaking or takes up permanent work in another safety area, the representative's term of office will terminate. In such case, a new safety representative shall be elected immediately, unless a deputy has been elected. The deputy shall then take over as the safety representative for the remainder of the term of office.
The undertaking's management shall be notified in writing of who has been elected as a safety representative. No demand for recognition of an employee as a safety representative can be made until such notification has been given. Until the management receives notification of the election result, the person previously elected shall be deemed to be the safety representative.
