Subchapter 001 : General Provisions

(Cite as: 3 V.S.A. § 1014)
  • § 1014. Management rights

    (a) The employer shall be responsible for insuring consistency of the terms and conditions in various agreements throughout the Judiciary Department and shall not agree to any terms or conditions for which adequate funds are not available.

    (b) Subject to rights guaranteed by this chapter and other applicable laws, nothing in this chapter shall be construed to interfere with the right of the employer to:

    (1) carry out its statutory mandate and goals and to utilize personnel, methods and means in the most appropriate manner;

    (2) take necessary action to carry out its mission in an emergency situation.

    (c) The employer shall take any action necessary to implement and administer the provisions of a legally binding agreement between the employer and an employee organization.

    (d) The Agency of Administration shall provide to the Supreme Court, on request, any information that it possesses or can reasonably produce that it uses to prepare for or conduct collective bargaining negotiations. The Agency shall also provide any services it provides to Executive and legislative agencies or departments related to the processing of the State’s payroll and the administration of benefits. In the event the bargaining agreement contains provisions that require the Agency of Administration or the Judiciary Department to expend more than what is typically budgeted for administration and maintenance of the payroll or benefit administration system, the Court Administrator shall request the funding at the time the agreement is submitted to the General Assembly for approval under subsection (c) of section 1036 of this title.
