PEBA Bill HB 364 Good for Workers
May 12, 2020

Governor Lujan Grisham Signs House Bill 364 Into Law

Measure Ushers in Public Sector Labor Law Reform in New Mexico

HB 364 was signed into law on March 5, 2020. Pictured are all of the labor leaders that had a hand in pushing the law up the hill including Teamsters Local 492 Political Coordinator Melissa Malcom (shown above in front row 4th from the left).

“House Bill 364 modernizes New Mexico’s Public Employees Bargaining Act (PEBA) and provides public sector employers and employees with the currently used tools necessary to create a coherent and consistent labor policy in New Mexico, in step with laws recently modified by other states. HB 364 represents a true and hard fought compromise between New Mexico’s public servants and State and local governments. Though HB 364 incorporates many changes, the provisions which are most significant can be summarized as follows: labor board restructuring, freedom to choose a Union without intimidation (election reform), dues deduction reform, and protecting employees' rights to fair representation.

Every person in New Mexico deserves the right to come together and stand up for their safety and economic well-being, and HB 364 strengthens this right for New Mexicans. With this bill, championed by Senators Mimi Stewart and Daniel Ivey-Soto, and Representatives Sheryl Williams Stapleton, Christine Trujillo, and Daymon Ely, we solidified that public servants will have their voices heard. We want to extend our greatest appreciation to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and every member of the House of Representatives and the State Senate who stood in solidarity with working New Mexicans. We appreciate your courage to respect and empower the working women and men of our state,” said Labor Attorney Shane Youtz.
