PERB Clarifies Public Agencies’ Obligation to Consult With Employee Organizations Prior to Adopting or Amending Rules or Regulations for the Administration of Employer-Employee Relations

September 29, 2014 | Bulletin No. 1145776.1

The Public Employment Relations Board (“PERB”) addressed a new issue in International Association of Firefighters, Local 1319 v. City of Palo Alto (PERB Decision No. 2388-M, August 6, 2014),when it determined that California Government Code section 3507 of the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act requires a public agency to consult with each affected employee organization prior to adopting a new rule or regulation for the administration of employer-employee relations.  PERB concluded that the “consultation” required by section 3507 is similar to the meet and confer process required by section 3505.  Nonetheless, it rejected the agency’s suggestion that permissive subjects of bargaining under section 3505 should likewise be deemed permissive subjects for consultation under section 3507.
