sSB 450

AN ACT CONCERNING MUNICIPAL VOLUNTEER SERVICES.

SUMMARY

This bill prohibits a municipality from entering a collective bargaining agreement that limits the municipality's ability to allow volunteer work that benefits it. However, it excludes from this prohibition collective bargaining agreements between a municipality and an exclusive representative (i.e., union) of paid firefighters or police officers, thus allowing these agreements to limit the municipality's ability to use volunteer work.
