Public employee striking bill struck

February 4, 2020

On January 30, HB 67 (Carter) was struck at the request of the patron in the House Labor and Commerce Committee. The bill would have authorized non-law enforcement public employees to engage in strikes or work stoppages without having been deemed to terminate their employment and prohibited from re-employment by a public employer in the Commonwealth for 12 months. These provisions in code are used to deter strikes by public employees and ensure delivery of essential public services. VACo staff expressed concern to the patron regarding the provisions of the bill. Hb 67 was one of many pieces of legislation impacting public employment and local governments filed this session.
