Rewarding Achievement and Incentivizing Successful Employees Act (H.R. 2732)

Core Provisions: The bill, known as the “RAISE Act”, would amend the National Labor Relations Act to provide that an employer does not commit an NLRA unfair labor practice or violate the terms of a collective bargaining agreement by paying its employees greater wages, pay, or other compensation than provided for in the applicable collective bargaining agreement.  Thus, the bill would effectively establish that wage scales contained in collective bargaining agreements represent a floor, but not a ceiling, for bargaining unit employee pay. 

Status: Rep. Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) introduced the bill on June 4, 2009, and it was referred to the House Committee on Education and Labor that same day.
