1    AN ACT concerning education.
2    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
3represented in the General Assembly:
4    Section 5. The Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act is
5amended by changing Section 1 as follows:
6    (115 ILCS 5/1)  (from Ch. 48, par. 1701)
7    Sec. 1. Policy. It is the the public policy of this State
8and the purpose of this Act to promote orderly and
9constructive relationships between all educational employees
10and their employers. Unresolved disputes between the
11educational employees and their employers are injurious to the
12public, and the General Assembly is therefore aware that
13adequate means must be established for minimizing them and
14providing for their resolution. It is the purpose of this Act
15to regulate labor relations between educational employers and
16educational employees, including the designation of
17educational employee representatives, negotiation of wages,
18hours and other conditions of employment and resolution of
19disputes arising under collective bargaining agreements. The
20General Assembly recognizes that substantial differences exist
21between educational employees and other public employees as a
22result of the uniqueness of the educational work calendar and
23educational work duties and the traditional and historical



HB1775- 2 -LRB103 27999 RJT 54378 b

1patterns of collective bargaining between educational
2employers and educational employees and that such differences
3demand statutory regulation of collective bargaining between
4educational employers and educational employees in a manner
5that recognizes these differences. Recognizing that harmonious
6relationships are required between educational employees and
7their employers, the General Assembly has determined that the
8overall policy may best be accomplished by (a) granting to
9educational employees the right to organize and choose freely
10their representatives; (b) requiring educational employers to
11negotiate and bargain with employee organizations representing
12educational employees and to enter into written agreements
13evidencing the result of such bargaining; and (c) establishing
14procedures to provide for the protection of the rights of the
15educational employee, the educational employer and the public.
