Current Bill Summary

SB 87 - This act requires the State Board of Mediation to conduct an election every two years to certify the exclusive bargaining representation of a collective bargaining unit. If a representative fails to receive 51% of the vote in favor of certification or recertification, the State Board shall decertify the representative. If a representative is decertified, the affected employees may not be included in a substantially similar collective bargaining unit for twelve months from the date of decertification.

This act is identical to SB 668 (2016), SB 126 (2015) and HB 46 (2015).
