The Public Employment Relations Law. What Every School Board Member Should Know about PERC. [Public Employment Relations Commission.] Vol. 6, Library Series. Revised.
Whalen, Garry M.; And Others
As an aid to New Jersey school board members, administrators, and attorneys without extensive labor law training, this revised edition of a handbook on the New Jersey Employer-Employee Relations Act sets out school boards' basic obligations and rights under the law in light of changes brought about by recent agency and court cases. Its six chapters cover, first, the nature and responsibilities of the state's Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC); second, the types of employees that may bargain collectively and the procedures for union representation, recognition, certification, and elections; third, unfair practices by employers or employee organizations and the proper procedures for filing unfair practices charges; fourth, the legal scope of negotiations and the process for petitioning PERC to decide scope of negotiations problems; fifth, PERC's use of injunctions and restraining orders, especially in past cases involving unfair practices and scope of negotiations; and, sixth, procedures for settling bargaining impasses, including mediation, factfinding, and conciliation. An appendix provides the full text of New Jersey's Employer-Employee Relations Act. (RW)
