The legislative bill that will bury RI once and for all: Teachers’ Binding Arbitration and perpetual contracts, House Bill 5340
The Chairwoman of the Labor Committee is the lead sponsor of a Binding Arbitration bill scheduled for hearing on Tuesday, February 12th in Room 201 at the State House. Binding Arbitration has been a long sought after piece of legislation by Labor, and in particular, the unions that represent employees in our public school system.
In a nutshell, school districts and unions will turn to a panel of arbitrators if mediation fails. Typically, these arbitrators are chosen through the American Arbitration Association, to settle any issues that either side perceives as stumbling blocks to agreement on a new contract. The arbitrator(s) determines what specific terms and conditions in question will become part of a new agreement that the school district must abide by. School districts in RI are already operating under a law that binds them to arbitration decisions that do not impact the expenditure of money.
