Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This proposal is introduced under section 111.92 (1) of the statutes. The
proposal ratifies the collective bargaining contract for state employees in the
building trades crafts collective bargaining unit negotiated for the 2016-17 fiscal
year 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.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
