City Attorneys’ Department Webinar: Next Steps for Cities After Janus v. AFSCME

July 11, 2018
On June 27, two significant changes occurred in the law related to agency shop arrangements and public sector collective bargaining — the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in Janus v. AFSCME and Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB 866.
 
These changes require swift action by public employers to comply with the ruling and to complete the meet and confer process regarding effects and impacts.
 
The City Attorneys’ Department is holding a webinar that will explain the Janus decision, SB 866, and the key steps public employers in California need to take to be in compliance on Thursday, Aug. 2 from 10 – 11:30 a.m. The webinar will also navigate some anticipated issues that unions or bargaining groups may raise and provide strategies for city attorneys on how to address those issues, as well as offer insight on how to communicate within the organization on these issues.
