The MMA contract has been signed by MMA and MMB and now has been submitted to the Sub Committee of Employee Relations for approval. The next scheduled meeting is on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 10:00 am Room 1150, Minnesota Senate Building. When the legislature is not in session, the commission may give interim approval to a negotiated collective bargaining agreement, salary, compensation plan, or arbitration award. Failure of the commission to disapprove a collective bargaining agreement or arbitration award within 30 days constitutes approval. The subcommittee has ten members: five members of the Senate, appointed by the Subcommittee on Committees of the Committee on Rules and Administration, at least one of whom must be a member of the minority; and five members of the House, three appointed by the speaker, and two appointed by the minority leader (Minnesota Statutes, section 3.855).
