Messages from the Senate

 

 

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 5.

A concurrent resolution to waive the legislative notice requirement for increases in rates of compensation for certain employees in the state classified service.

Whereas, The Constitution of the State of Michigan of 1963 provides in Article XI, Section 5:

Increases in rates of compensation authorized by the commission may be effective only at the start of a fiscal year and shall require prior notice to the governor, who shall transmit such increases to the legislature as part of his budget. The legislature may, by a majority vote of the members elected to and serving in each house, waive the notice and permit increases in rates of compensation to be effective at a time other than the start of a fiscal year.

; and

Whereas, Agreements were reached between the state and the Michigan Corrections Organization, AFSCME Council 25, the Michigan State Employees Association, the Service Employees International Union Local 517M Scientific and Engineering Unit, the Service Employees International Union Local 517M Technical Unit, the UAW International and its Local 6000 to increase rates of compensation for exclusively represented positions in certain classifications; and

Whereas, On July 25 and December 19, 2022, the Civil Service Commission approved the agreements, and also approved increases in the rates of compensation for non-exclusively represented positions in certain classifications, past the time when the Governor could transmit the increases as part of the budget; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That, pursuant to Article XI, Section 5 of the Constitution of the State of Michigan of 1963, the Michigan Legislature waives the prior notice requirement to permit increases in rates of compensation as described in the approved agreements between the state and exclusive representatives for exclusively represented positions, and as approved by the Civil Service Commission for non-exclusively represented positions; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Civil Service Commission.

The Senate has adopted the concurrent resolution.

The concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Appropriations.
