An Act relative to collective bargaining.

 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              SECTION 1.  To the extent that any provisions of Chapter 25 of the Acts of 2009 conflicts with a term of the Master Labor Integration Agreement (“MLIA”) executed by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (“MassDOT”) on or about December 29, 2008 or any agreement between MassDOT and Unions representing employees transferred to MassDOT executed between November 1, 2009 and the execution of the MLIA, then the terms of the MLIA or such other agreement shall prevail over such provision of Chapter 25.  Notwithstanding any general or special law, MassDOT is authorized to recognize and negotiate with the exclusive bargaining unit representative identified in the MLIA pursuant to G.L. c. 150E for the units established in the MLIA.  Nothing in this act is intended to amend, modify or render ineffective the provision of any other applicable general law.

              SECTION 2.   The provisions of Section 1 shall take effect immediately on the passage of this act.
