Chapter 22: VERMONT MUNICIPAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT
21 V.S.A. § 1729. Enforcement and review
§ 1729. Enforcement and review
(a) Orders of the board issued under this chapter may be enforced by any party or by the board by filing a petition with the Washington superior court or the superior court in the county in which the action before the board originated. The petition shall be served on the adverse party as provided for service of process under the Vermont Rules of Civil Procedure. If, after hearing, the court determines that the board had jurisdiction over the matter and that a timely appeal was not filed, or that an appeal was timely filed and a stay of the board order or any part of it was not granted, or that a board order was affirmed on appeal in pertinent part by the supreme court, the court shall incorporate the order of the board as a judgment of the court. There is no appeal from that judgment except that a judgment reversing a board decision on jurisdiction may be appealed to the supreme court.
(b) Upon filing of a petition by a party or the board, the court may grant such temporary relief, including a restraining order, as it deems proper pending formal hearing.
(c) Any person aggrieved by an order or decision of the labor relations board issued under the authority of this chapter may appeal on questions of law to the supreme court under sections 2382 et seq. of Title 12.
(d) An order of the board shall not automatically be stayed pending appeal. A stay must first be requested from the board. The board may stay the order or any part of it. If the board denies a stay, then a stay may be requested from the supreme court. The supreme court or a single justice may stay the order or any part of it and may order additional interim relief.
