This bill from Senator Jack Walsh has already been released from the Senate Labor Committee yesterday and may get a vote on the floor of the Senate soon. The bill would makes compensation a mandatory subject of bargaining for any group of employees who have joined together for purposes of collective bargaining and certified a labor organization to serve as the group’s exclusive collective bargaining representative.
Sometimes there are bills that presented that shock you with the realization that the subject of the bill is not already law. I mean, how can you have a collective bargaining meeting with the employer without the subject of compensation coming up?
