AB 2835, as introduced, Cooper. Public school employment: collective bargaining: unlawful activities.
Under existing law, public school employees have the right to form, join, and participate in the activities of employee organizations of their own choosing for the purpose of representation on all matters of employer-employee relations. Existing law makes certain acts of public school employers, such as school districts, unlawful, including, among others, the refusal or failure to meet and negotiate in good faith with an exclusive representative.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that later provision.
