C.R.S. Section 8-3.3-104
Exclusive representatives

  • rights


A county shall give the exclusive representative reasonable access to county employees at work, through electronic communication and other means. Reasonable access must be determined through collective bargaining.


At the end of each calendar quarter, a county shall provide to the exclusive representative the following information for each county employee in the bargaining unit:


The name, employee identification number, department, job classification, job title, work telephone number, work e-mail address, work address, work location, salary, and date of hire of each county employee as contained in the county’s records; and


The home address, home and personal cellular telephone numbers, and personal e-mail address of each county employee, unless directed by the county employee not to provide some or all of the information.
(3)(a)(I) Within thirty days after a county employee is hired, the county shall provide the exclusive representative with an opportunity to meet with that county employee during work time as determined pursuant to subsection (3)(a)(III) of this section.


The county shall provide the exclusive representative notice at least ten days in advance of a new employee orientation; except that a shorter notice may be provided when there is an urgent need, critical to the county’s operations, that was not reasonably foreseeable.


The county and the exclusive representative shall determine the structure, time, and manner of the employee organization’s access to county employees through collective bargaining. The collective bargaining agreement must provide the exclusive representative access to the county’s employee orientation and orientation materials and information.


The county shall pay its county employees for the time employees meet with the exclusive representative pursuant to this subsection (3). The county shall pay each county employee the same rate of pay that the employee is paid during normal work hours.


The county shall make payroll deductions for membership dues and other payments that county employees voluntarily authorize to be made to the exclusive representative and related entities. The exclusive representative and related entities shall be the only organizations for which the county shall make payroll deductions from county employees who are in a bargaining unit represented by the exclusive representative.


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


The county shall honor the terms of county employees’ authorizations for payroll deductions made in any form that satisfies the requirements of the “Uniform Electronic Transactions Act”, article 71.3 of title 24, including without limitation electronic authorizations, including voice authorizations, that meet the requirements of an electronic signature as defined in section 24-71.3-102 (8).


At the election of the exclusive representative, a county employee’s request to cancel or change authorizations for payroll deductions must be directed to the exclusive representative rather than to the county. In such case, the exclusive representative is responsible for processing the request in accordance with the terms of the authorization. An authorization for a payroll deduction may not be irrevocable for a period of more than one year.


An exclusive representative that certifies that it has and will maintain individual county employee authorizations is not required to provide a copy of an individual authorization to the county unless a dispute arises about the existence or terms of that authorization. The exclusive representative shall indemnify the county for any claims made by the county employee for deductions made in reliance on information maintained by the exclusive representative.
