The Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act 6 is amended by changing Section 1 as follows: 7 (115 ILCS 5/1) (from Ch. 48, par. 1701) 8 Sec. 1. Policy.
It isThe public policy of this State 9 and the purpose of this Act is to promote orderly and 10 constructive relationships between all educational employees 11 and their employers. Unresolved disputes between the 12 educational employees and their employers are injurious to 13 the public, and the General Assembly is therefore aware that 14 adequate means must be established for minimizing them and 15 providing for their resolution. It is the purpose of this Act 16 to regulate labor relations between educational employers and 17 educational employees, including the designation of 18 educational employee representatives, negotiation of wages, 19 hours and other conditions of employment and resolution of 20 disputes arising under collective bargaining agreements. The 21 General Assembly recognizes that substantial differences 22 exist between educational employees and other public 23 employees as a result of the uniqueness of the educational 24 work calendar and educational work duties and the traditional 25 and historical patterns of collective bargaining between 26 educational employers and educational employees and that such 27 differences demand statutory regulation of collective 28 bargaining between educational employers and educational 29 employees in a manner that recognizes these differences. 30 Recognizing that harmonious relationships are required 31 between educational employees and their employers, the -2- LRB9103670NTsb 1 General Assembly has determined that the overall policy may 2 best be accomplished by (a) granting to educational employees 3 the right to organize and choose freely their 4 representatives; (b) requiring educational employers to 5 negotiate and bargain with employee organizations 6 representing educational employees and to enter into written 7 agreements evidencing the result of such bargaining; and (c) 8 establishing procedures to provide for the protection of the 9 rights of the educational employee, the educational employer 10 and the public. 11 (Source: P.A. 83-1014.)
