AB 96 – Union Right To Notice Of Autonomous Vehicle – Public Transit Only
This bill requires a public transit employer, to provide written notice to the exclusive employee representative of the workforce affected by the autonomous transit vehicle technology of its determination to begin that procurement process. Notice must be provided at least 10 months before beginning a procurement process to acquire or deploy any autonomous transit vehicle technology for public transit services that would eliminate job functions or jobs of a workforce. The bill would vest PERB with jurisdiction to process unfair practice charges alleging violations of these provisions, but only as to transit district employers where PERB has jurisdiction to process unfair practice charges. The bill would authorize PERB to make additional emergency regulations, as specified.
(Amends Chapter 9.1 (commencing with Section 3125) to Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code.)
