Despite tough fiscal times, labor unions are trying to squeeze out the best possible benefits for their members. But when the people of California will pay the bill, unions and government agencies need to provide a cost breakdown to the state Legislature. Otherwise the agreements won’t become law.
Recent case: When the governor’s office and a labor union reached a pact to retroactively raise pension benefits for some union members and reclassify them as “safety members,” the Legislature was supposed to receive a summary of the agreement, plus a cost breakdown. That never happened.
An arbitrator upheld the agreement, but the Court of Appeal of California reversed that decision, concluding the parties hadn’t provided the required information. (CSLEA v. CDPA, No. C061102, Court of Appeal of California, 2011)
