1000.02012 – Budget Proposals
Board summarily affirms dismissal of charge that DPA violated 3516.5, and 3519(a), (b), and (c) of Dills by failing to give unions notice and opportunity to bargain before proposing an initiative to the Attorney General or people of the state which would allow the Governor, in state of fiscal emergency, to furlough or reduce salaries of state employees. Matters at issue found not to be within the scope of representation because: (1) the mediatory influence of collective bargaining is not suited to the resolution of this conflict; and (2) such obligation would unduly abridge employers' freedom to exercise managerial prerogative.
