On October 12, 2019, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1291 (“AB 1291”), which requires companies to sign a “labour peace agreement” with a union or to risk losing their cannabis license; strengthen the national cannabis law, which is already in favour of trade unions. AB 1291 has been supported and supported by several unions, including the United Food and Commercial Workers Western States Council, a 170,000-strong branch representing thousands of cannabis workers. This bill, along with other local laws and laws in California, indicate a growing insistence by government and local regulators that employers doing business in California accept union-friendly demands. However, many of these new pro-union laws, including AB 1291, may be unconstitutional. The settlement increases the minimum wage from nearly 8,000 of these service officers to $13.45 (with annual inflation adjustments), which is perhaps not surprising, given the city adopted a $13 minimum wage for Chicago workers in 2014. It is more interesting to note, however, that the new airport regulations also provide for a waiver of the minimum wage for covered airport employers who opt for union formation. It also includes a “work harmony” section that requires companies to work on it to negotiate a labour peace agreement with each union that requires a union. The expression of opinions, arguments or opinions, or their dissemination, whether written, printed, graphic or visual, does not constitute a practice of unfair labour within the meaning of any of the provisions of this sub-chapter, or is proof of this if it does not contain any threat of retaliation or promises of retaliation or benefits. The agreement provides conditions for future employees working in concessions, program and retail sales, real estate services and security, hospitality services, stage and theatre presentations, entertainment, audiovisual and audiovisual services. Agreements for ballpark construction contracts and other community services will be dealt with at a later date. Another harmful element of the regulation is the prevention of peace in the workplace, which radically changes the table in favour of trade unions.
As a condition for obtaining or maintaining a contract at one of the airports, employers will be required to negotiate an employment contract with any union that seeks a contract (. B as the SEIU). The regulation does not require employers to recognize a union, and because it prohibits strikes, it appears to be weighted against work.
