June 5, 2006 – Senator Terrence "Positive" Nelson would like to inform the public that the Senate Committee on Labor and Agriculture will be hearing testimony on Bills 26-0234 and 26-0225 at a scheduled committee meeting on June 12, 2006 at the Legislative Conference Room in St. Croix.
Bill 26-0234 is a proposed act amending 24 V.I.C., Chapter 18 relating to plant closings and other related purposes. Plant closings are those circumstances that occur when a permanent cessation or reduction of business at a facility results in the permanent separation of at least half of the employees at that facility.
Bill 26-0225 is a proposed act amending 24 V.I.C., Chapter 17 by adding a section relating to the waiver of rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. This bill would amend the labor code to prohibit the enforceability of an agreement that waives a constitutional right when the person waiving the right did so knowingly or involuntarily.
Any individuals or organizations that are interested in receiving additional information on those bills, or in presenting testimony at the June 12th committee meeting should contact the office of Senator Nelson at 712-2210.
