Connecticut State Board of Labor Relations

This division helps employers and employees resolve differences and craft agreements, safeguards employees’ rights to organize, and compels employers to abide by collective bargaining agreements and Connecticut’s wage and workplace standards.

About Us

Our quasi-judicial Board helps workers and employers in four ways by:

  • Helping employees and employers resolve disputes and agree on a course of action
  • Protecting the right of workers to bargain collectively
  • Protecting the rights of public sector and some private sector employees to form, join, or assist labor organizations
  • Administering the major portion of four collective bargaining statutes covering state and municipal employees, public school teachers, certain administrators, and some private sector employees
