Sandy Martinez LRD Director, is also co-chair for the Statewide Labor-Management Committee (LMC). Ms. Martinez’s involvement as co-chair is vital to the State for knowledge, history and possible statewide impact resulting from the outcomes of such meetings.
LRD conducts monthly meetings for management personnel. The intent of these meetings is to update and educate management on evolving labor issues and to advise attorneys in matters that may require legal action.
Collective Bargaining Agreements
LRD is distinctively involved in every aspect of CBAs. The Bureau participates in negotiations with the three unions that currently have CBAs. The LRD is responsible for formatting, printing and distributing the contract, while ensuring the language that was agreed upon is the language contained within the contract. After the contract has been distributed, the LRD becomes the overseer for deadlines and specific provisions within the contracts.
LRD works with agencies and the union if the parties want to draft a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The LRD will determine if the MOU is necessary and will approve or deny the request. This is important because MOUs will then become an extension of the CBA.
