This proposal is introduced under section 111.92 (1) of the statutes. The
proposal ratifies the collective bargaining contract for state employees in the
technical collective bargaining unit negotiated for the 2009-11 biennium under the
State Employment Labor Relations Act. Currently, statutory program supplement
appropriations fund the costs of collective bargaining agreements to the extent that
they exceed budgeted costs. The proposal authorizes expenditure of moneys from
those appropriations to fund the cost of this agreement.
