If you are in a bargaining unit, you should be aware of changes that were made by the Maryland General Assembly to the way in which your employee information is shared with the exclusive representative of your bargaining unit (the “Union”). Prior to the 2018 Legislative Session, most of this information was made available after an “opt out” process was conducted, which permitted an employee to deny the Union access to the employee’s information.
With the passage of House Bill 1017, effective October 1, 2018 employee information will be made available upon request by the Union once every 120 days and within 30 days of a new employee’s date of hire.
