Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act. Modifies defined terms for purposes of the Act, and provides that such defined terms apply to all public employees. Provides that no public employee position shall be excluded from a bargaining unit prior to that position being filled. Provides that in describing the unit found appropriate for purposes of collective bargaining, the Illinois Labor Relations Board shall, at a party's request, describe the unit in job function terms rather than by job titles. Provides that unit descriptions may also include those currently existing job titles that perform the job functions. Provides that a bargaining unit shall also include positions later filled that perform the job functions of a unit and job titles later created that: (i) are successor job titles to the currently existing job titles; (ii) perform the same or substantially similar job functions as the currently existing job titles; or (iii) are logically encompassed within an existing unit. Provides that specified provisions shall apply to bargaining units in existence on the effective date of this amendatory Act.
