State Labor Relations Act
(CONN. GEN. STAT. §
31-101, et seq.)
The State Labor
Relations Act was enacted in 1945 and was modeled, in significant part, after
the original federal Wagner Act. The SLRA covers private employers who do
not fall under the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board.
This Act created the State Board of Labor Relations and gave it functions
similar to those of the NLRB. It has not been amended in any substantial
way since its enactment. Because of the jurisdiction of the NLRB over most
private sector employers, cases arising under the SLRA constitute less than 10%
of the Labor Board's case load.
