Olathe Nea Negotiated Agreement
We begin our analysis by examining several provisions of the Negotiating Act. The Kansas Act passed the law in 1970. L.1970, 284. it grants professional officers to an education committee, for example. B Certified teachers, the right to create professional work organizations (PEOs), to join them or to support them. K.S.A. 72-5413 (c); K.S.A. 72-5414. The law also grants them the right to participate, through the GP, in professional negotiations with the Board of Directors in order to improve their professional conditions of service. K.S.A. 72-5413 K.S.A. 72-5414.
While the law authorizes more than one PEO per district, a particular OAP becomes the exclusive representative of all professional employees in an „appropriate bargaining unit” – usually all certified teachers in a school district – when the majority of the unit`s specialized employees spend it. K.S.A. 72-5413 (f); K.S.A. 72-5415.com. KANAAE acknowledges that since November 1970, ONEA has been recognized by the Olathe School District and the State of Kansas as an exclusive negotiator in such professional negotiations. Since then, the ONEA has negotiated almost every year with the Board of Directors the terms and conditions of the rate unit. The proposed agreement has not yet been approved by the Education Committee and ratified by the bargaining unit. All certified/non-administrative certified employees are part of the rate unit.

Among the „professional terms of service” negotiated by the applicant and the Olathe NEA is Olathe NEA`s exclusive right to use the applicant`s internal postal system. This right is open to Olathe NEA insofar as it concerns the dissemination to members of the professional negotiation unit of information on the professional negotiation process and related issues. We begin by re-examining different provisions of the negotiations act. As has already been said, this is a legal system based on the concept of two distinct groups: the Education Council as an employer and an PUTO on behalf of professional workers who conduct professional negotiations to reach an agreement in their mutual interest, by fixing, maintaining, protecting or improving the conditions of professional service for workers. K.S.A. 72-5413 (e), f and (g); K.S.A. 72-5414; K.S.A. 72-5421; K.S.A. 72-5430 (b) (5) and c) (3). In accordance with this concept, the law also provides that when a majority of professional agents of the bargaining unit chooses a representative for negotiation purposes, „that representative is the exclusive representative of all professional agents of the unit for that purpose.” K.SA 72-5415 (a).
While workers, individually or collectively, can still present or make their positions or proposals known to the Board of Directors, the right to effectively negotiate with the bargaining unit remains exclusively in the bargaining unit. KANAAE recognizes that the right to negotiate has been the exclusive domain of ONEA since 1970. In the mid-1990s, some teachers in the district became members of the Association of American Educators (AAE), a self-proclaimed conservative alternative to the National Education Association, to which ONEA is affiliated. In February 1996, the new members of the AEA contacted a member of the school board to inquire about a possible AAE affiliation with the Professional Council and their use of the internal postal system, i.e. mailboxes, to distribute their recruitment materials. The borough rejected the AAE`s application and cited its collective agreement with the ONEA as the basis for its rejection.
