Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act. Provides that no election shall be directed by the Illinois Labor Relations Board in any bargaining unit after an interest arbitrator has been appointed pursuant to the impasse resolution procedures under the Act, except in the case of fire fighter units. Provides that for peace officer units and security employee units only, within 7 days after the request of either party to proceed to arbitration, the parties shall request a panel of impartial arbitrators from which they shall select the neutral chairman, unless the parties have mutually agreed upon an arbitrator or have negotiated a contract procedure for selecting an impartial interest arbitrator. Provides that in the absence of mutual agreement or an agreed contract procedure for selecting an impartial arbitrator, either party may request a panel from the Board. Provides that if the parties fail to notify the Board of their selection of a neutral chairman within 7 days after receipt of the list of impartial arbitrators, the Board shall appoint, at random, a neutral chairman from the list.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
Adds reference to:
820 ILCS 105/4afrom Ch. 48, par. 1004a

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill. Provides that for peace officer units and security employee units only, within 7 calendar days (rather than 7 days) after the request by either party to proceed to arbitration, the parties shall request from the Board a panel of arbitrators from which the parties shall select the neutral chairman. Deletes provisions regarding the absence of mutual agreement or an agreed contract procedure for selecting an impartial arbitrator. Provides that if the failure to notify the Board of a mutual selection for the neutral chairman is due to one party's failure to timely participate in the selection process, the party who was prepared to participate in a timely selection may notify the Board of its willingness to select an arbitrator from the panel. Further provides that under such circumstances, the Board, after waiting 7 days after the receipt of the panel by the non-participating party, shall appoint as the neutral chairman the arbitrator from the panel chosen solely by the party who was prepared to participate in a timely selection. Amends the Minimum Wage Law. Provides that overtime compensation provisions of the Law do not apply to any employee who is a member of a bargaining unit recognized by the Illinois Labor Relations Board and whose union has contractually agreed to an alternate shift schedule as allowed by specified provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Provides that within 7 days after the receipt of the panel by the non-participating party and upon filing a written request with the Board, the non-participating party shall receive a one-time 7-day extension for the period within which to participate in the selection process. Provides that this extension takes effect during the initial 7-day period to select a neutral chairman and shall toll the running of that 7-day period. Further provides that if, after the expiration of the initial 7-day period and the 7-day extension, the non-participating party does not participate in the selection process, the Board shall appoint as the neutral chairman the arbitrator from the panel chosen solely by the party who participated in a timely selection.
