Court of Appeal Upholds Proposition B Despite PERB’s Ruling

Date: Apr 11, 2017


On April 11, 2017, the Court of Appeal found the California Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) erred when it concluded the City of San Diego violated unfair labor practices by declining to meet and confer over Proposition B, a citizen-sponsored initiative. By annulling the PERB’s decision, the Court of Appeal cleared the way for the City to continue to enforce Proposition B.
Approved in 2012, Proposition B closed the defined benefit retirement plan to newly hired City employees, other than for sworn police officers. SDCERS has been implementing Proposition B since its effective date and will continue implementing it pursuant to the recent Court of Appeal decision. SDCERS staff will continue to monitor developments on the issue and work with the parties involved on the outcome of any further court proceedings.
