Abstract: The Cooperation Act would guarantee security officials basic collective bargaining rights in countries they do not currently grant. The Law on Cooperation between Employers and Workers in the Field of Public Security would confer on public security officials basic collective bargaining rights in countries that do not currently grant them. The legislation gives states broad flexibility to draft and manage their own laws, in accordance with the following minimum standards: while Congress has in the past given states and municipalities ample leeway in managing their own collaborators, the guarantee of basic collective bargaining rights is consistent with the growing role of the public safety community in protecting the homeland security of our The country. Firefighters and police benefit from productive partnerships between employers and workers. Studies have shown that municipalities that encourage such cooperation benefit from a more efficient and effective emergency service. Cooperation enables employers and workers to cope with difficult budgetary constraints that proved invaluable when the country recovered from the last economic crisis. The best way to ensure such cooperation is to establish a well-established framework for collective bargaining. The legislation does not allow strikes or lockouts, does not violate the right to work and does not infringe on existing national laws and collective agreements. While many public security officials already benefit from local collective laws, many workers still do not have rights or whose laws do not provide adequate protection. Over the years, Congress has expanded the scope of collective bargaining laws to protect private sector employees, transportation workers, federal government employees, and congressional employees. One of the few groups of workers that are not covered by federal law is government and local employees, including public safety officials.
Includes professional firefighters, paramedics, firefighters and sea rescue officers and supervisors. IAFF strongly supports the Law on Cooperation between Employers and Workers in the Field of Public Safety and encourages members of Congress to co-sponsor the bill.
