SECTION 36-11-2

§ 36-11-2. Discrimination because of membership in employee organization prohibited.

There shall be no discrimination against any state employee because the employee has formed, joined, or chosen to be represented by any labor organization or employee organization. Membership in any employee organization may be determined by each individual employee; provided, however, that in areas where employees have selected an exclusive bargaining representative organization, all nonmembers of the exclusive bargaining representative organization shall pay to the exclusive employee organization a service charge as a contribution toward the negotiation and administration of any collective bargaining agreement in an amount equal to the regular biweekly membership dues of the organization, with the state controller being hereby directed upon certification of the exclusive bargaining organization to deduct biweekly from the employee's salary the above amount and remit the amount to the treasurer of the exclusive bargaining organization. Supervisory employees shall not endorse any particular employee organization or, by reason of membership in any organization, show prejudice or discriminate toward any individual employee.
