1000.02125 – Salaries or Wages
Where pension plan provisions relied on by the unions did not confer any right to “permanency” in employee benefits or contribution formulas, unions failed to show that proposed changes to employee pension contribution formulas affected “vested rights” beyond the scope of mandatory bargaining. Because no vested rights were identified, the Board declined to consider whether, or under what circumstances, vested rights may be modified through collective bargaining.
