STATE & LOCAL

BOMA/Chicago Gains IDF Support in Fight to Protect Collective Bargaining

BOMA International’s Industry Defense Fund (IDF) Oversight Committee approved an application from BOMA/Chicago addressing a new city ordinance that violates the collective bargaining process and national labor policy. In July, the Chicago City Council passed a Fair Workweek Ordinance, one of the more comprehensive “predictive scheduling” laws in the nation. BOMA/Chicago disagreed with the added mandate of a waiver to get exemptions for employees covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement—in essence, the city council is preempting collective bargaining by creating a waiver that will become a negotiated item. As the collective bargaining agent for member buildings, BOMA/Chicago is committed to defending the ability to negotiate labor contracts in good faith and defeating politically driven interference in the process.
