SERB-FEES FOR FACT FINDERS & CONCILIATORS
Recently the State Employment Relations Board reached the following decisions.  First, effective for cases assigned on or after March 1, 2006, the per diem rate ceiling for fact finders and conciliators will be raised to $700 per day.  Second, also effective for cases assigned on or after March 1, 2006, the neutral may impose reasonable cancellation fees up to and including this new maximum rate by informing the parties of his/her cancellation policy in the rate sheet provided to the parties through SERB.  Finally, the Board instructed SERB staff to research, analyze, and report back to the Board within the next two months on the feasibility of amending O.A.C. Rule 4117-9-01 (C) to eliminate SERB’s role in setting the per diem limits on neutrals.

FYI - BID LIMIT INCREASED
The League is still getting questions concerning the increase in bid limits. The increases were in included in HB95, the Biennial Budget Bill. The limit for when cities and villages must put purchases out for competitive bids (the bid limit) was raised from $15,000 to $25,000. This change, inserted at the request of the League took effect September 26, 2003.
