Pension reform measure that San Diegans overwhelmingly supported in 2012 stands
SAN DIEGO (April 11, 2017) --- A California appeal’s court ruled unanimously in favor today of two appeals challenging an employee relations board ruling that aimed to overturn a pension reform measure San Diego voters overwhelmingly supported five years ago.
“This is a victory for the citizens of San Diego and the state of California,” said April Boling, one of three proponents of the pension reform measure who also filed one of the court appeals in January 2016 following a decision by the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB). “The court agreed citizens can take matters into their own hands through the initiative process and support of elected officials does not somehow trigger the requirement for union negotiations.”
