§ 28-9.7-5. Recognition of bargaining agent.
The organization selected by the majority of the correctional officers shall be recognized by the state as the sole and exclusive bargaining agent for all of the correctional officers unless and until recognition of the organization is withdrawn by vote of a majority of the correctional officers. The labor organization or state may designate any person or persons to negotiate or bargain on its behalf; provided, however, that the person or persons so designated shall be given authority to enter into and conclude an effective and binding collective bargaining agreement.
