UPDATE - August 26, 2011
Major daily newspapers up and down the state are urging the Legislature to defeat AB 350. It seems the rhetoric used to push the bill is as transparent to them as it is to people in our industry, and the bill is being called everything from “perverse” to “frivolous” to “just plain wrong.”
The SF Chronicle is one of the latest to blast the bill, “Jerry Brown should veto union job-protection bill.”

UPDATE - August 20, 2011
AB 350 one of the most far-reaching pieces of legislation to impact the commercial property industry in a long time, will be voted on next week in the Senate Appropriations Committee, and possibly the Senate Floor. After that, this inexpedient bill could be on its way to the governor.
Under AB 350, any time a service provider gets a new contract, they will be forced to hire the prior contractor’s employees. That’s right, this bill isn’t limited to the sale of the building, it applies to ANY NEW SERVICE CONTRACT.
