ACT NO. 1
(SPECIAL SESSION H.1)
Vermont State Colleges; collective bargaining
This act amends a section of the Fiscal Year 2006 Omnibus Appropriations Act (Sec. 178a of H.516) relating to the Vermont State Colleges (VSC) collective bargaining agreement. The act deletes from passage provisions in the appropriations act which would direct the parties to negotiate further and accept mandatory arbitration of early retirement provisions for the VSC faculty and instead provides that the last best offer recommended to the legislature by the Vermont Labor Relations Board shall be the collective bargaining agreement for full-time faculty at the VSC. The act retains those provisions of the appropriations act which, beginning July 1, 2005, would remove the legislature from the collective bargaining process between the VSC and the VSC faculty.
Effective Date: Part from passage, remainder July 1, 2005.
