PERB: No Duty to Bargain Over Retired Peace Officers' CCWs

In Riverside Sheriffs' Association v. County of Riverside (2013) 38 PERC ¶ 21, PERB ruled an employer does not have to meet and confer with a union about the CCW policy for retirees because retirees are not in the bargaining unit.  PERB reaffirmed that employers do not have to negotiate policies affecting retirees or other employees outside a union's bargaining unit unless those decisions affect current bargaining unit members in a significantly adverse way.
