Board of Personnel Appeals

The Board of Personnel Appeals is a five member quasi-judicial board charged with providing appellate level review for matters involving the Collective Bargaining Act for Public Employees.

Members of the Board are appointed by the Governor. By statute Board membership is comprised of an equal number of management and labor representatives, a presiding officer with knowledge in the field of labor relations, and alternate members representing management and labor.
