Parties to collective bargaining agreements.

(1) The rights and responsibilities under Title 50A RCW do not apply to parties covered by collective bargaining agreements in effect before October 19, 2017, unless and until the agreements expire, are reopened, or are renegotiated.
(2) Employers must inform the department immediately upon the reopening, renegotiation, or expiration of a collective bargaining agreement that was in effect prior to October 19, 2017.
(3) An employer must file quarterly reports once a collective bargaining agreement expires, is reopened, or is renegotiated.
(4) To be eligible for benefits, an employee must have worked at least eight hundred twenty hours during the qualifying period. If the employee's qualifying period includes any quarter prior to a collective bargaining agreement being reopened, renegotiated, or expiring, the department will request the employee's qualifying period wages and hours from the employer. The employer must provide the wages and hours to the department within ten calendar days.
(5) Employees not covered by a collective bargaining agreement are subject to the rights and responsibilities of Title 50A RCW. Employers are also subject to the rights and responsibilities of Title 50A RCW for employees not covered by a collective bargaining agreement, regardless of whether the employer is party to a collective bargaining agreement covering other employees.
(6) Employers party to multiple collective bargaining agreements among different bargaining units are subject to the rights and responsibilities of Title 50A RCW as they pertain to the bargaining units whose collective bargaining agreement has expired, been reopened, or renegotiated, on or after October 19, 2017.
