School Board-Teacher Negotiations Act (TNA)
(CONN. GEN. STAT. 10-153a, et seq.)

  1. The School Board/Teacher Negotiation Act was enacted in 1976, giving the Labor Board jurisdiction to resolve prohibited practice complaints of certified school board personnel (teachers and administrators) and school boards.  While teachers had the right to bargain as early as 1961, there existed no machinery to police the conduct of this process until the passage of this statute.  The Labor Board has no jurisdiction to handle representation issues, however, which is the responsibility of the State Board of Education.
