 1        AN ACT in relation to education.

 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.  The Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act
 5    is amended by changing Section 3 as follows:

 6        (115 ILCS 5/3) (from Ch. 48, par. 1703)
 7        Sec. 3.  Employee rights.
 8        (a) It shall  be  lawful  for  educational  employees  to
 9    organize,  form, join, or assist in employee organizations or
10    engage in lawful concerted  activities  for  the  purpose  of
11    collective  bargaining  or other mutual aid and protection or
12    bargain collectively through  representatives  of  their  own
13    free  choice  and,  except as provided in Section 11  of this
14    Act, such employees shall also have the right to refrain from
15    any or all such activities.
16        (b)  Representatives selected by educational employees in
17    a unit appropriate for collective bargaining  purposes  shall
18    be  the exclusive representative of all the employees in such
19    unit to bargain on wages,  hours,  terms  and  conditions  of
20    employment.   However,  any individual employee or a group of
21    employees  may  at  any  time  present  grievances  to  their
22    employer and have them adjusted without the  intervention  of
23    the  bargaining  representative  as long as the adjustment is
24    not inconsistent with the terms of  a  collective  bargaining
25    agreement  then  in  effect,  provided  that  the  bargaining
26    representative has been given an opportunity to be present at
27    such adjustment.
