Labor Management Relations Board

Next meeting: Friday, January 12, 2018, 9 to 11 a.m. in the SFCC Board Room, West Wing Room 223

The purpose of the Board is to guarantee employees the right to organize and bargain collectively with their employee, to protect the rights of the employer and the employees and to promote harmonious and cooperative relationships between the employer and the employees; and to acknowledge the obligation of the employer and the employees to provide orderly and uninterrupted services to the citizens.

“Collective bargaining” means the act of negotiating between the employer and an exclusive representative for the purpose of entering into a written agreement regarding wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of employment.
