Senator Adams-sponsored bill Passes in Senate
Provides binding arbitration to all members of the Security Services or Security Supervisors collective bargaining units. Currently, binding arbitration in collective negotiations is available only to correctional officer members of these bargaining units.
Legislation that became law during the 2001 Legislative Session provided binding arbitration with respect to compensatory issues for members of the Security Services and Security Supervisors units. However, in 2002 binding arbitration was limited to members of the Security Services and Security Supervisors units who are state correction officers. This legislation seeks to ensure the original legislative intent is carried out by providing binding arbitration to all titles within the Security Services and Security Supervisors collective bargaining units
