Senate Roll Call 372 on
2011 House Bill 4522: Require public safety arbitrators consider ability to pay

Passed 27 to 10 in the Senate on June 29, 2011.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To revise the criteria that must be considered by “PA 312” binding arbitration panels. These arbitrators have the power to impose contract terms between municipalities and public safety unions in the event of a collective bargaining impasse. The bill reflects the terms of a House Republican majority compromise with government employee unions. It would expand the scope of this law to consolidated multi-government service authorities (but not 9-1-1 call centers); place a 180 day deadline on the process; and require arbitrators to consider the financial ability of the community to pay, and the pay and benefits of comparable private sector employees, in addition to other government employees. Arbitrators would not be prohibited from considering the community's ability to impose additional taxes.
