2. WORKERS` ORGANIZATIONAL STATUS Conn. Gene. Stat. 5-270 When used in sections 5-270 to 5-280, including: (d) workers` organization means any legal association, work organization, federation or council who has as its main objective the improvement of wages, hours and other conditions of employment of civil servants. State of Connecticut (OLR), Decision No. 1945 (26.09.80): The Protective Services Employees Coalition has filed a petition to represent the NP-5 bargaining unit represented by the incumbent CSEA union. AFSCME joined the procedure as an intervener. After the hearing, the Laboratory Council found that the Protective Services Employees Coalition was a workers` organization under the law and conducted an election. Summary Newly appointed prosecutors have the title of Assistant Assistant Prosecutor. Promotion to assistant state`s attorney and senior assistant state`s attorney is governed by the collective agreement between the state of the Connecticut Division of Criminal Justice and the Connecticut Association of Prosecutors, the collective bargaining unit (Public Prosecutor`s Office).
Prosecutors` responses to Smart Justice`s questions show a lack of national rules to create standard repressive practices in all districts. We learned recently, through a question on freedom of information, that there is a manual containing national guidelines for prosecutors, but on the basis of the information we have gathered so far, it seems to focus mainly on personnel and administrative issues, not on criminal proceedings. B. REFUSAL TO NEGOTIATE IN GOOD FAITH. Gene. Stat. 5-272 (b) workers` organizations or their representatives are prohibited from: (2) restricting or coercing an employer to choose his representative for the purposes of collective bargaining or adaptation of cases of maladministration; (3) refusal of any collective bargaining in good faith with an employer, where the employer has been appointed as the sole representative of the workers in an appropriate unit in accordance with the provisions of paragraphs 5 to 270 to 5-280 inclusive; Conn. Gene. Stat. 5-272 (c) For the purposes of sections 5 to 270 to 5-280 inclusive, collective bargaining is the fulfilment of the reciprocal obligation of the employer or its designated representatives and the workers` representative to meet at appropriate times, including meetings that are proportionate to the budgeting process, and to bargain in good faith with respect to wages; hours of work and other conditions of employment, except as provided for in subsection (d) of this section, or the negotiation of an agreement or any matters arising therefrom and the performance of a written contract containing an agreement entered into by one of the parties, but such obligation shall not compel either party to accept a proposal or require the conclusion of a concession.
Conn. Gene. Stat. 5-272 (d) Nothing is intended there to carry out and evaluate the authority and power of the Employees Review Board, the Department of Administrative Services or any public authority established by law, charter or special law to establish, execute and evaluate candidates in the order of their relative excellence, from which appointments or promotions are made in the Competition Department of the classified service of State n, which is served by the Ministry of Administration. . . . .
