AB 350 which creates a protected class of building services employees – employed with private sector companies – passed the California State Assembly last week.
Should this bill be signed into law, tenants and property managers will not see a change in the staff responsible for day-to-day services when they hire a new company. And new companies – union or non-union – will be forced to take on employees that they have not screened and who may not be up to the required tasks.
AB 350 is extremely unfair to productive workers as it would displace employees who work for a service provider that has successfully competed for a new contract with employees from the previous company that lost the job -- even if the reason for losing the contract was poor performance of the now protected employees.
The measure now moves to the Senate, where BOMA California will work hard both in Sacramento and in the various Senate districts to defeat this measure.
