JonesFloorShot1“This measure addresses a significant void we need to fill.” -  Senator Emil Jones III

SPRINGFIELD, IL – State Senator Emil Jones III (D–Chicago) saw his bill targeted toward improvement of Illinois law addressing labor relations pass the Senate last Friday. 

“This measure addresses a significant void we need to fill,” Jones said. “Currently there are no substantial regulations to deal with the disciplinary action of suspension and dismissals of selected mediators and the consequent costs.”   

Senate Bill 1830 clarifies that the Illinois Labor Relations Board shall be authorized but not obligated to establish compensation levels and suspension or dismissal procedures of mediators chosen by state and local panels.

The legislation in no way changes the manner in which mediation occurs or the way in which mediators are chosen by the parties involved in a mediation.  

“I am proud of the progress seen today with respect to this measure,” Jones said, “I hope in the future we continue to see favorable outcomes in regards to this legislation as it is debated in the House.”

SB 1830 passed with a vote of 51-0-0 and now awaits the consideration of the Illinois House.
