                                                                    AB 2835

          This bill ratifies the provisions of a memorandum of  
          understanding (MOU) between the state and an as yet unspecified  
          state bargaining unit. 

          FISCAL EFFECT:


          Unknown.


          COMMENTS:


          1)Purpose. This is a spot bill that will be used to approve the  
            final collective bargaining agreement reached this year  
            between the state and an as yet unspecified state bargaining  
            unit.  The current MOU for 15 of the state's 21 bargaining  
            units expire on or around the first of July this year. 

          2)Background. Existing law requires, under the State  
            Employee-Employer Relations Act (the Dills Act), collective  
            bargaining agreements (MOUs) that are negotiated between the  
            state and exclusive representatives of each of the 21 state  
            bargaining units be ratified by the Legislature.
