PELRA Update - June 2024

We will post the following information on the OHR site today.

During the 2024 Legislative session, several changes were made to The Public Employment Labor Relations Act (PELRA) that specifically impact the University and go into effect on July 1, 2024. The changes include:

  • The expansion of the definition of a public employee.
  • Employee groups represented by the same or different unions may now participate in joint bargaining.
  • The deletion of Civil Service (Unit 12), Civil Service Supervisors (Unit 13), P&A (Unit 11), and Twin Cities faculty (Unit 8) as mandated bargaining units. 
  • The ability for groups of employees to petition the Bureau of Mediation Services (BMS) to determine appropriate units for future bargaining.  

Employees in deleted PELRA units will continue to be governed by existing Civil Service Rules, P&A Policies, and Tenure Code. The terms and conditions of their appointments remain unchanged. 

The legislation is available online with the relevant information beginning in Article 8
