LITTLE ROCK SCHOOL DISTRICT - NEPN CODE:  HGA

 

RECOGNITION OF STAFF MEET AND CONFER ORGANIZATIONS

While there is no legal obligation on the part of the Board of Education to meet and confer with employee groups, the Little Rock School Board of Education may voluntarily meet and confer with certain classifications of employees.  This voluntary arrangement can be beneficial to the Little Rock School District and to the employee groups affected.  It is the desire of the Board to extend the opportunity to meet and confer to classifications of employees and to recognize the representatives of those employees.  Such recognition shall be granted under the following conditions:

1.    That such recognition be deemed, by the Board of Education and a majority of the employees, to be in the best interest of the employees and the District.

2.    That, in the opinion of the Board of Education, the employees to be represented have a community of interests including, but not limited to, the following: (a) similarity of duties, skills, interests, and working conditions of employees; (b) similar placement in the Little Rock School District organizational structure.

3.    That a majority of the employees, in the classification seeking to be recognized for meet and confer purposes, elect by secret ballot the members of the team from within that employee group that will represent them.

Continued recognition of any meet and confer team will be contingent upon the following:

1.      Continued belief, on the part of the Board of Education and the majority of the employees, that such recognition is in the best interest of the employees and the District.

   2.    That the team conduct the employee's business in a manner consistent with the State Laws relating to public sector employee groups.

This policy is not intended to apply to employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement with the Board.
