101.01000 – In General
While transit districts, with their own statutorily prescribed method of administering employer-employee relations, are not subject to the MMBA (see Rae v. Bay Area Rapid Transit Supervisory Etc. Assn. (1980) 114 Cal.App.3d 147, 251 (170 Cal.Rptr. 448)), the Golden Gate Transportation District (the employer in this case) is a "public agency" within the meaning of MMBA section 3501(c). Therefore, the Board has jurisdiction to decide this case involving the "recognized employee organization" (Inlandboatsmans Union of the Pacific) under MMBA section 3501(b).
