§

1012. Employees' rights and duties; prohibited acts

(a) Employees

shall have the right to self-organization; to form, join, or assist employee

organizations; to bargain collectively through their chosen representatives; to

engage in concerted activities of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or

protection; to refrain from any or all those activities, except as provided in

subsections (b) and (c) of this section; and to appeal grievances as provided

in this chapter.

(b) An employee

may not strike or recognize a picket line of an employee organization while

performing the employee's official duties.

(c) An employee

who exercises the right not to join the employee organization representing the

employee's certified unit pursuant to section 1021 of this title shall pay a

collective bargaining service fee to the representative of the bargaining unit

in the same manner as employees who pay membership fees to the representative.

The employee organization shall indemnify and hold the employer harmless from

any and all claims stemming from the implementation or administration of the

collective bargaining service fee. Nothing in this section shall require an

employer to discharge an employee who does not pay the collective bargaining

service fee.

(d) The employer

and employees and the employee's representative shall exert every reasonable

effort to make and maintain agreements concerning matters allowable under

section 1013 of this title and to settle all disputes, whether arising out of

the application of those agreements or growing out of any dispute between the

employer and the employees. (Added 1997, No. 92 (Adj. Sess.), § 9; amended

2013, No. 37, § 7.)
