Sec. 13A-116. Service of Panels.
If the governing body of any municipality, governmental office,
agency, department or nonprofit entity not otherwise subject to a labor
relations system established by law, but who performs substantial
functions within the County, adopts by appropriate resolution its labor
code, the Board and its component Panels shall assert its jurisdiction
and powers over such body to the extent provided in that resolution,
provided that such governmental unit shall bear the administrative costs
involved. Whenever the provisions of this Code refer to employer or to a
legislative body, such terms shall refer to the appropriate body of the
municipality or agency that has adopted this Code as its code.
