The Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania recently rendered two notable decisions, Office of Administration v. Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board and Gehring v. Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board, which raise the specter of a potential sea change in the breadth of individual employee rights under the Public Employee Relations Act (PERA) and those statutory provisions giving police and firefighters collective bargaining rights commonly known as Act 111. This article will summarize and analyze these two prominent labor decisions in an effort to highlight current issues and themes in this critical area of the law.
