California Supreme Court Announces They Will Review Fourth District Court of Appeal Ruling on Proposition B

Date: Jul 27, 2017


On July 27, 2017, the California Supreme Court announced they have agreed to review the Fourth District Court of Appeal ruling on Proposition B.  In 2012, Proposition B closed the defined benefit retirement plan to newly hired City of San Diego employees, other than sworn police officers. City unions challenged the legality of Proposition B on the grounds the City violated unfair labor practices by failing to meet and confer over the proposition. In April 2017, the Court of Appeal found the City did not violate unfair labor practices, thereby clearing the way for the City to continue to enforce Proposition B. Today, the California Supreme Court agreed to review the Fourth District Court of Appeal’s ruling.
The outcome of the California Supreme Court’s review is uncertain. SDCERS will continue to monitor developments on the issue and work with the parties involved on the outcome of any further court proceedings.
