    2  nate a member associated in interest with the public employer or employ-

    7  parties  are unable to agree upon the one public member, the board shall
    8  submit to the parties a list of qualified, disinterested persons for the
    9  selection of the public member.   Each party  shall  alternately  strike
   10  from  the list one of the names with the order of striking determined by
   11  lot, until the remaining  one  person  shall  be  designated  as  public
   12  member.  This  process shall be completed within five days of receipt of
   13  this list. The parties shall notify the board of the  designated  public
   14  member. The public member shall be chosen as chairman.
   15    S  2.  This act shall take effect immediately; provided, however, that
   16  the amendments made to paragraph (a) of subdivision 5 of section 209  of
   17  the  civil  service  law by section one of this act shall not affect the
   18  expiration of such subdivision and shall be deemed to expire therewith.
