                         Laws of Minnesota 1986 

                        CHAPTER 459-H.F.No. 418 
           An act relating to local government; clarifying the 
          correction of inequitable compensation relationships; 
          amending Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 471.992; 
          proposing coding for new law in Minnesota Statutes, 
          chapter 471; repealing Minnesota Statutes 1984, 
          section 471.9965. 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 471.992, is 
amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [ESTABLISHMENT.] Subject to sections 
179A.01 to 179A.25 but notwithstanding any other law to the 
contrary, every political subdivision of this state shall 
establish equitable compensation relationships between 
female-dominated, male-dominated, and balanced classes of 
    Subd. 2.  [ARBITRATION.] In all interest arbitration held 
pursuant to sections 179A.01 to 179A.25, the arbitrator shall 
follow consider the equitable compensation relationship 
standards established under Laws 1984, chapter 651, sections 1 
to 10 section 471.993 together with other standards appropriate 
to interest arbitration.  The arbitrator shall consider both the 
results of a job evaluation study and any employee objections to 
the study. 
    Subd. 3.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] This section will become 
effective August 1, 1987.  
    Sec. 2.  [471.9966] [EFFECT ON OTHER LAW.] 
    Notwithstanding section 179A.13, subdivision 2, it is not 
an unfair labor practice for a political subdivision to specify 
an amount of funds to be used solely to correct inequitable 
compensation relationships.  A political subdivision may specify 
an amount of funds to be used for general salary increases.  The 
provisions of sections 471.991 to 471.999 do not diminish a 
political subdivision's duty to bargain in good faith under 
chapter 179A or sections 179.35 to 179.39. 
    Sec. 3.  [REPEALER.] 
    Minnesota Statutes 1984, section 471.9965, is repealed. 
    Approved March 25, 1986
