Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board
Board Rules and Regulations
Regulation No. 104-1 (# 3229)

 On March 28, 2019, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board (Board). This rulemaking amends 34 Pa. Code Chapters 91, 93 and 95. The proposed regulation was published in the April 6, 2019 Pennsylvania Bulletin with a public comment period ending on May 7, 2019. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on October 23, 2019.

 This regulation provides for electronic filing of documents in labor relations proceedings with the Board. Attorneys and representatives will be able to agree to service of filings of papers by e-mail from other parties. The Board will accept filings of certain scanned documents by e-mail. Petitions, other documents with a showing of interest and joint election requests may not be filed by e-mail. This regulation also deletes requirements for parties to submit multiple copies of documents.

 We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the Board (43 P.S. §§ 211.4(f) and 1101.502) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

 This regulation is approved.
