Collective Bargaining

Collective bargaining is the negotiation between an employer and a bargaining agent chosen by a group of employees to determine the terms and conditions of employment.  Collective bargaining for state employees in Florida is provided by the Florida Constitution and is governed by the provisions of Chapter 447, Florida Statutes. Florida is a right to work state; therefore, the right of an individual to work cannot be denied based on membership or non-membership in any labor union or organization. To ensure the orderly and uninterrupted operations and functions of government, Florida’s state employees do not have the right to strike.  Currently, there are five labor organizations representing State Personnel System employees whose classes are assigned to one of 13 collective bargaining units.
