(a) 4. To refuse to bargain collectively with a representative of a 6
majority of its employes in an appropriate collective bargaining unit. Such refusal 7
shall include action by the employer to issue or seek to obtain contracts, including 8
those provided for by statute, with individuals in the collective bargaining unit while 9
collective bargaining, mediation or fact-finding concerning the terms and conditions 10
of a new collective bargaining agreement is in progress, unless such individual 11
contracts contain express language providing that the contract is subject to 12
amendment by a subsequent collective bargaining agreement. Where the employer 13
has a good faith doubt as to whether a labor organization claiming the support of a 14
majority of its employes in an appropriate bargaining unit does in fact have that
support, it may file with the commission a petition requesting an election to that 2
claim. An employer shall not be deemed to have refused to bargain until an election 3
has been held and the results thereof certified to the employer by the commission. 4
The violation shall include, though not be limited thereby, to the refusal to execute 5
a collective bargaining agreement previously agreed upon. The term of any collective 6
bargaining agreement shall not exceed 3 years.".
(b) 3. To refuse to bargain collectively with the duly authorized officer 11
or agent of a municipal employer, provided it is the recognized or certified exclusive 12
collective bargaining representative of employes in an appropriate collective 13
bargaining unit. Such refusal to bargain shall include, but not be limited to, the 14
refusal to execute a collective bargaining agreement previously agreed upon.".
