The bill was passed, as amended, and its title agreed to.

 

 

S. F. No. 2490 was reported to the House.

 

 

Pugh moved to amend S. F. No. 2490, the second engrossment, as follows:

 

Delete everything after the enacting clause and insert:

 

"Section 1. [179A.60] JOINT POWERS AGREEMENTS.

 

Subdivision 1. Definition. For purposes of this section, "entity" means an operating organization, established by agreement of two or more governmental units for the joint exercise of governmental powers, that has its own governing board with the authority to hire its own employees and is exempt from chapter 297A. For purposes of this section, entity does not include service delivery authorities created under section 402A.35.

 

Subd. 2. Application. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 179A.12 or any other law, this section governs the initial certification and decertification, if any, of exclusive representatives for an entity. Employees of an entity are public employees and joint powers entities are public employers under section 179A.03. After initial certification and decertification, if any, as provided in this section, this section does not apply.

 

Subd. 3. Determination of appropriate bargaining unit. For purposes of determining an appropriate unit, employees hired by, assigned to, or transferred to the joint powers entity shall be presumed to be the appropriate unit for all employees of the newly created joint powers entity, unless the commissioner determines it inappropriate under the standards established in section 179A.09. The commissioner may also approve an alternative bargaining unit structure agreed upon by all parties. The determination shall take effect as soon as practicable after filing of a petition, but not later than the date the joint powers entity is formally created.

 

Subd. 4. Transition to new bargaining units and certification of exclusive representatives. In certification of exclusive representatives for appropriate units of employees of newly created joint powers entities, the commissioner shall use the criterion set forth in section 179A.102.

 

Subd. 5. Early unit determination and exclusive representative certification. (a) Prior to the effective date of an agreement creating an entity, the commissioner may resolve questions of appropriate unit determination and provide for the certification of exclusive representatives if:

 

(1) all the governmental units creating the entity pass a resolution requesting the commissioner to do so; and

 

(2) the affected exclusive representatives agree.

 

(b) A new collective bargaining agreement may be negotiated under subdivision 7 prior to the effective date of an agreement creating an entity, so long as the collective bargaining agreement is approved by all of the governmental units creating the entity.

 

Subd. 6. Interim collective bargaining agreements. (a) This subdivision only applies if an exclusive representative is certified under subdivision 4.


Journal of the House - 98th Day - Tuesday, May 6, 2014 - Top of Page 10174

(b) Until a successor contract is executed between the new joint powers entity and the exclusive representative of its employees, the board of the joint powers entity and the exclusive representatives of the employees may agree:

 

(1) to comply with the contract with the member of the entity that employed the largest portion of the new employees who are assigned to the new joint powers entity with respect to all of the employees assigned to the new joint powers entity; or

 

(2) that each of the contracts shall apply to the employees previously subject to the respective contract.

 

(c) In the absence of an agreement according to paragraph (b), each of the contracts shall apply to the employees previously subject to the respective contract and shall be binding on the new joint powers entity.

 

Subd. 7. Contract negotiations and administration. The exclusive representative of employees of a new joint powers entity shall upon certification be responsible to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement, file grievances, and otherwise administer the prior collective bargaining agreement until a new collective bargaining agreement is agreed to, and to receive dues or fair-share fees.

 

Subd. 8. Investigation and discipline. If an employee who is transferred from the employment of a member to the employment of a joint powers entity is under investigation by the member of the entity at the time of the transfer and would be subject to discipline by the member of the entity, the new joint powers entity may discipline the employee for just cause, and the employee's union may file a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement the employee was covered by as an employee of a member of the entity or the new collective bargaining agreement after it is agreed to.

 

Subd. 9. Employee personnel files. The governmental units creating an entity may provide the new entity with access to private and confidential data relating to employees of the governmental units who become employees of the entity.

 

Subd. 10. Seniority. Upon creation of a new entity, seniority shall be based on the employee's continuous service with a member of the entity and the employee's service with the entity.

 

Subd. 11. Layoffs and recalls. Layoffs and recalls shall be based on seniority as defined herein. Recall rights shall continue to apply until a new collective bargaining agreement is agreed to by the parties.

 

Subd. 12. Decertification. The commissioner may not consider a petition for decertification of an exclusive representative certified under this section for one year after certification. After that time, a petition must be considered under the provisions of section 179A.12.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE. This section is effective for entities established on or after January 15, 2015."

 

 

A roll call was requested and properly seconded.

 

 

Drazkowski moved to amend the Pugh amendment to S. F. No. 2490, the second engrossment, as follows:

 

Page 3, after line 6, insert:

 

"Subd. 12. Employee termination when duplication. Nothing in this section precludes an entity from terminating an employee whose functions are provided by another employee."

The commissioner of the Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services must conduct a survey of local governments in the state to determine if Minnesota Statutes, section 179A.60, is a barrier to local governments entering into joint powers agreements, and if so, in what way it is a barrier. The commissioner must aggregate the information provided and report to the legislature as provided in Minnesota Statutes, section 3.195, and to the chairs and ranking minority members of the legislative committees with jurisdiction over local government policy and labor and
