The Bureau of Labor Relations is responsible for the administration of three collective bargaining agreements that impact the Department. These agreements affect all bargaining unit employees who are located among the 30 correctional institutions, various offices of the Division of Parole and Community Services, Ohio Penal Industries, and Central Office.

In addition to interpreting and administering the contracts, the Bureau of Labor Relations reviews all disciplinary actions at this suspension/termination level prior to them being imposed upon an employee. This review consists of ensuring that the employee is properly charged in accordance with the Standards of Employee Conduct; that the recommended level of discipline is consistent with the Standards of Conduct; and that the proposed action is free from procedural defects. In the event that the employee being disciplined files a grievance on the action in accordance with their collective bargaining agreement, the Bureau represents the Department in the grievance steps up to and including final and binding arbitration of the grievance.
