Senate bill lists union rights of ic workers Lm Â«Â«Â«, cm T*fÂ»., JM. a, IOT INDEPENDENT (AM) By BOB SCHMIDT Our State Bureau .SACRAMENTO - Legislation giving most of;the 1.2 million state, county, and municipal employes the right to form and join unions, for collective bargaining was introduced Wednesday with strong endorsement from Senate and Assembly leaders. The bill will be carried by Sen. Ralph Dills, D- . Gardens, but is the product of "five months of intensive study and effort," by the Joint Committees on -Public Employer-Employes Relations, he said at a Capitol nevfe conference. "Under the 77-page proposal,, a State Public 'Em- pldy merit Relations Board would be established to oversee relations between management and groups representing public employes, including the^process by which employes select their bargaining agent. ''. THE BILL AUTHORIZES strikes and lockouts, but only after tightly controlled negotiation procedures, including mediation and fact-finding have been exhausted. " "It is true," Dills said, "that under certain well- defined procedures employes may strike and public agencies may lock out employes. This could occur if it is determined by an impartial court that such a strike or lockout would not imperil public health or safety and, further, that there is no other feasible method of protection of public health or safety should a strike or lockout occur." ~ Asked to cite an example of a strike by public employes which would not have an adverse effect on public health or safety, Dills said he did not care to hypothesize. ' . : . .SEN. GEORGE MOSCONE, D-San Francisco, said the measure was designed to eliminate any situations in which a strike or lockout would be used. If an impasse in negotiations is declared to exist by .either the employer or the employe representative, Dills said, PERB will appoint a mediator. If there is no settlement within 10 days, either party may request that their differences be submitted to a fact-finding panel, or the board may appoint a panel on its own initiative. . Each party must designate one member of the fact-finding panel within 24 hours, and the two designated members h a v e 48 hours to select a third member, who shall be the chairperson. If the two members are unable to agree, the board will designate a chairperson. Â·If the dispute is not settled within 30 days, the panel shall make findings of fact and recommendations. If the parties do not accept the recommendations, negotiations shall resume for 10 days, or longer if mutually agreeable. IF THE IMPASSE IS still unresovled after that period, the findings may be made public and employes by secret ballot and the legislative body of the public agency, at a public meeting, shall vote on whether to accept the factfinders'recommendations. If both parties vote to accept the recommendations, the impasse is resolved. . If one of the parties votes to reject the recommendations, a strike or lockout may take place no less than seven days after written notice of such a decision is served on the other party and the board and announced to' the public. The state buard may, r during that seven-day period, either on its own initiative or at the request of one, of the parties, initiate court proceedings to prevent the strike'or lockout. . s ,If the court prevents the strike or lockout or stops an action already started, it must direct the parties to accept the factfinders' recommendations. EXCLUDED FROM THE PROPOSAL are elected public officials, persons holding positions by appointment of elected officials, members of the states military, and supervisory, managerial, or confidential em- ployes, defined as secretaries and personnel aides to elected officials. All other public employes, including teachers and fire fighters, will be covered. AMD YOU BIT YOU BIT"! IR HURRY AM") SAVI. NOW!
