„Collective bargaining“ means respecting the reciprocal obligation of the public employer by its representatives and workers` representatives to negotiate in good faith at reasonable times and in accordance with wages, hours, conditions and other terms of employment, as well as the continuation, modification or removal of an existing provision of a collective agreement or to resolve issues arising from the contract. „Collective bargaining“ includes the execution of a written contract containing the terms of an agreement reached. The obligation to bargain collectively does not mean that one of the parties is obliged to accept a proposal, nor does it require the granting of a concession. The CBL prohibits the state from collectively negotiating with its employee commitments4, regardless of the continuation, modification or suppression of an existing agreement. Agencies, authorities, commissions, state boards and a public university are prohibited with the state. In connection with the above, it is understandable that the Collective Bargaining Office is now abolished. The Collective Agreements Act (CBL) contains many changes to workers` public collective agreements. It removes the right of public servants2 to negotiate collective agreements. The Ohio law defines collective bargaining3: because of the impact of collective bargaining on the educational process, THE OSBA offers member bodies the following working relationships: analysis and evaluation of contracts, substantive advice on language proposals and strategies, development of proposals and counter-proposals, representation of negotiations at the table, exit assistance, appeal/arbitration/representation of procedures and continuing training and support for the management of proceedings.

The CBL goes into detail, while this article touches on some of these points. For a copy of the CBL, as signed in the law, please note that it is available for free, as a matter of public registration9. The CBL was signed on March 31, 2011 and came into effect immediately. What is remarkable is that both the House of Representatives and the Senate passed the CBL the day before.
