Collective Bargaining Agreements – Effect of Rules

Section 4-2

Board Rule PDF  English

The Chief Executive Officer or his/her designee shall negotiate all collective bargaining agreements on behalf of the Board, and submit tentative agreements to the Board for adoption and approval. These Rules shall be construed consistently with any collective bargaining agreement entered into by the Board. Where a collective bargaining agreement is silent on a subject addressed by these Rules, these Rules shall control. In the event that a Rule is in direct conflict with a provision of a collective bargaining agreement, the provision of the collective bargaining agreement shall control, except where the provision of the collective bargaining agreement has been waived or declared void. Nothing in this Rule shall revive a provision of a collective bargaining agreement that was voided pursuant to 115 ILCS 5/4.5, as it existed from 1995 to 2003, unless revival of that provision has been specifically negotiated and agreed to by the Board. Nothing in this Rule shall affect the Board’s rights or obligations with respect to permissive subjects of bargaining as set forth in 115 ILCS 5/4.5.
