COUNTY SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR LOCAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD SEATS

Doña Ana County is seeking applications from residents interested in serving one-year appointments on the Doña Ana County Labor Management Relations Board. Applicants are being sought to represent both management and labor.

The Doña Ana County Labor Management Relations Board is a three-member board of volunteers whose members enforce provisions of the Doña Ana County Labor-Management Relations Ordinance and the board’s Labor-Management Relations Rules and Regulations through the imposition of appropriate administrative remedies.

Matters that historically have come before the labor management relations board include designation of appropriate bargaining units; the selection, certification, and decertification of exclusive representatives; and the filing, hearing, and determination of complaints regarding prohibited practices.

One member representing management and one member representing labor are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and the two appointees recommend the third neutral member appointed by the Board of County Commissioners for one-year appointments. During the term of appointment, no board member shall hold or seek any other political office or public employment or be an employee of a union, an organization representing public employees or a public employer.

Applications will be accepted through 5 p.m., Thursday, July 26, 2012.
