Thomas J. Griego, Executive Director
Welcome to the New Mexico Public Employee Labor Relations Board
The New Mexico Public Employee Bargaining Act (PEBA), (§§ 10-7E-1
through 10-7E-26 NMSA 1978), creates the Public Employee Labor
Relations Board (PELRB). The Act reinstates collective bargaining
for public employees, which expired in 1999. This means that the Board has authority
over all general collective bargaining matters between employee organizations or
individual public employees and either state agencies or units of local government that
that have not established a local labor board. The PELRB also has jurisdiction to ensure
that local labor ordinances and resolutions (and in some instances, local labor boards) comply
with PEBA. You have my pledge as the Board's Executive Director that I will do my best to guarantee
public employees the right to organize and bargain collectively with their employers; promote harmonious and
cooperative relationships between public employers and employees; and protect the public interest
by assuring the orderly operation and functioning of the state and its political subdivisions as required
by the PEBA, § 2.
PELRB Office Closure on November 4, 2014
We will be closed on Tuesday, November 4th at 4:00 p.m. to allow employees an opportunity to vote. We apologize for any inconvenience.
