AB 3034 was introduced on February 16, 2018, by Assembly Member Low. AB 3034 would place the supervisory employees of the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District under the MMBA and under PERB’s jurisdiction. Currently, most transit employees are covered under various statutory sections of the Public Utilities Code, and therefore are not under PERB’s jurisdiction. One exception is the Transit Employer Employee Relations Act (TEERA) which places the supervisory employees of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority under PERB’s jurisdiction. AB 3034 accomplishes the same result as the TEERA for BART supervisors. However, instead of creating an entirely new public sector collective bargaining statute, AB 3034 places BART supervisors under the MMBA.
