- Due to a recent new interpretation of Missouri statutes, all new petitions will need to be filed by an attorney, licensed in Missouri. It has been determined that deciding what type of a petition to file or what the make-up of the proposed unit will be are legal questions. Section 484.020 RSMo. requires all entities before the state be represented by counsel.
- On March 8, 2019 the Circuit Court in St. Louis issued an order enjoining the Missouri Department of Labor and the Missouri State Board of Mediation from administering and enforcing the changes made to the state's public sector labor organization law as passed by the legislature in HB 1413 (2018).
The Department is reviewing this order and further updates will be posted as appropriate.
