PERB's recent decisions on effects bargaining (County of Santa Clara, City of
Sacramento, Rio Hondo CCD) have altered the rules and establish clear bargaining obligations
'Effects bargaining' is one of the most complicated and least understood areas
of labor relations. Effects bargaining is frequently triggered when an agency changes a non-
negotiable policy or practice that impacts mandatory subjects of bargaining. Often, an obligation to
engage in effects bargaining occurs when an employer reorganizes unit work, or when an agency
consolidates, reduces, eliminates, automates, or contracts out services.
This single-part video Academy Webinar answers key questions about
effects bargaining, including:
When an agency must provide notice to a union about a change in a
non-negotiable policy or practice.
How to assess 'reasonably foreseeable effects.'
What is involved in the 'clarification process.'
Whether an agency can implement a non-negotiable decision while
negotiating the effects.
Whether impasses on negotiating effects are subject to factfinding.
CALPELRA's first live video Webinar on the Affordable Care Act was extremely

labor relations topics and critical new issues that arise. To the extent the video Webinar format
