In 2011, the Tennessee General Assembly passed the Professional Educators Collaborative Conferencing Act (PECCA), which replaced teachers’ collective bargaining rights with Collaborative Conferencing. Collaborative Conferencing gives professional employees the ability to decide to engage in a series of employee-related issues with the Board of Education and the professional organizations chosen to represent them. Collaborative Conferencing is not limited to members of the organizations listed and it includes all professional employees.
