Current Bill Summary

SB 761 - This act removes a provision exempting police, deputy sheriffs, Missouri State Highway patrolmen, Missouri National Guard and teachers from collective bargaining under the public sector labor law.

This act amends the public sector labor law to require the public body and the exclusive bargaining representative to bargain in good faith to reach an amicable agreement.

Currently, the results of discussions are reduced to writing for adoption, modification, or rejection. This act removes the modification option. Tentative bargaining agreements shall be ratified pursuant to the ratification process established by the exclusive bargaining representative.

This act is similar to SB 486 (2009), HB 1001 (2009), SB 473 (2009), and HB 1159 (2009).
