Public employees; compensation for union activities. Prohibits any employer of public employees authorized to engage in collective bargaining from entering into a collective bargaining agreement to compensate any public employee or third party for an employee organization's or union's activities. Further, if a union's activities infringe on an employer's time and resources, the union must compensate the employer at a fair market value rate. The bill provides for enforcement by the Attorney General and creates a cause of action for public employees to remedy potential violations. The provisions of the bill preempt inconsistent local laws and regulations. Read the Bill »
