Collective bargaining unit created for law enforcement supervisors

A new law creates a collective bargaining unit for law enforcement supervisors under the Public Employment Labor Relations Act.

The law, effective Aug. 1, 2022, also removes state patrol supervisors, Department of Natural Resources’ enforcement supervisors and criminal apprehension investigative supervisors from the right to separate from the general supervisory employees units under PELRA.

A transition will be allowed until a collective bargaining agreement can be negotiated and approved for the new law enforcement supervisors unit.

Rep. Rob Ecklund (DFL-International Falls) and Sen. Jeff Howe (R-Rockville) sponsor the law.
