Governor Signs AB 1181 to Expand MMBA Rights

On September 9, 2013, Governor Brown signed AB 1181, expanding labor associations' rights under the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act.  AB 1811 requires employers to give labor leaders reasonable time off work to participate in proceedings before PERB and testifying before personnel commissions.  Associations have to give reasonable notice.  This bill expands on associations' pre-existing right to reasonable time off for negotiations.
