Factfinding continues to be of major interest to MMBA employers. One of the best ways to get a feel for factfinding is to review factfinding reports. PERB has recently updated the available factfinding reports on its website. (Click here to view them.) There are now 14 separate MMBA factfinding decisions available for review. I know of at least one other completed report and several more are in the works.
My understanding is that there have been over 70 requests for factfinding under the MMBA since the enactment of AB 646. Not all the requests result in a factfinding report since often times the parties will reach an agreement during the process or request that a report not be written. But I still expect the number of reports to at least double, if not triple, this year.
