S.F. No. 2111 - Affirmative Approval before Interim Implementation of State Employee Collective Bargaining Agreements Requirement
Author: Senator Mark W. Koran
Prepared By: Stephanie James, Senate Counsel (651/296-0103)
Date: March 20, 2019


Under current law, a collective bargaining agreement is deemed approved if the Legislative Coordinating Commission (LCC) fails to disapprove the agreement when the legislature is not in session, as well as when the LCC approves the agreement.  This applies to arbitration awards as well. 

Section 1 [State Employee Negotiations] requires actual approval of a collective bargaining agreement or arbitration award by the Legislative Coordinating Commission to be approved when the legislature is not in session, instead of treating a failure to disapprove as approval.
