S.F. No. 1833 - State Employee Collective Bargaining Agreements Affirmative Approval Before Interim
Author: Senator Mark W. Koran
Prepared By: Stephanie James, Senate Counsel (651/296-0103)
Date: March 14, 2017


Section 1 [State employee negotiations] modifies the requirements for legislative approval during the interim of a collective bargaining agreement or arbitration award.

Under current law, collective bargaining agreements and arbitration awards are effective upon approval by the Legislative Coordinating Commission when the legislature is not in session.  Failure of the LCC to disapprove an agreement or award during the interim constitutes approval of that agreement or award.  Section 1 changes the effect of a failure of the LCC to approve, so that a failure by the LCC to approve a collective bargaining agreement or arbitration award during the interim will not constitute approval.
