Binding interest arbitration for unfair labor practices

Late last week, the bill allowing the Public Employment Relations Commission to order binding interest arbitration in the case of an unfair labor practice, HB 1230, was unexpectedly pulled to the House floor. The bill had been sent to the House Appropriations Committee where we anticipated another opportunity to express our concerns. Instead the Appropriations Committee was relieved of consideration and the bill sent to the House Rules Committee where it was quickly moved. It may now be voted on at any time. Due to the high costs associated with interest arbitration, AWC opposes any attempt at expansion of binding interest arbitration.
