Senate Bill No. 1085

Introduced by Senator Skinner

February 12, 2018

An act to amend Section 3503 of the Government Code, relating to public employment.


SB 1085, as introduced, Skinner. Local public employee labor relations.
Existing law, the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act, authorizes local public employees, as defined, to form, join, and participate in the activities of employee organizations of their own choosing for the purpose of representation on matters of labor relations. Existing law also grants these public employees the right to refuse to join or participate in those activities and the right to represent themselves individually. Existing law permits employee organizations to establish reasonable membership restrictions to make reasonable provisions for the dismissal of individuals from membership.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes in these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 3503 of the Government Code is amended to read:

 Recognized employee organizations shall have the right to represent their members in their employment relations with public agencies. Employee organizations may establish reasonable restrictions regarding who may join and may make reasonable provisions for the dismissal of individuals from membership. Nothing in this This section shall does not prohibit any employee from appearing in his or her own behalf in his or her employment relations with the public agency.
