Welcome to the Iowa PERB electronic research and retrieval database system. This system provides access to full-text documents contained in four databases: Contracts, Contracts Archive, PERB and Court Decisions, and Neutral Decisions.
- Contracts – Contracts published and included in this database are only those forwarded to PERB by the parties.
- Contracts Archive – Contracts that were forwarded to PERB and have expired, beginning with those that expired in 2008, are included in this database.
- PERB and Court Decisions – In this database, the PERB decisions do not include routine or preliminary rulings and orders issued by PERB, but include only substantive final agency decisions and non-final rulings and orders deemed informative. Court decisions are those on judicial review of PERB decisions.
- Neutral Decisions – The neutral decisions database includes recent and a number of prior years’ fact-finding and interest arbitration decisions. Additionally, it includes only those grievance arbitration decisions forwarded to PERB for publication by the arbitrator with consent of the parties involved. Click on the Contents tab of the database to view all documents contained in the database.
The databases are word-searchable with title fields to narrow your search. Each database also has a table of contents with an indexed listing of its documents.
Upon accessing one of the databases, you can retrieve full-text documents through the Contents tab or perform selected searches of the database by clicking the Search tab.
