MMBA section 3505 requires public agencies to meet and confer in good faith with employee organizations regarding matters with the scope of representation. The rule applies when a party seeks to change a matter within the scope of representation through the initiative process. Therefore, prior to placing the matter before the voters, the party seeking the change must first satisfy its obligation to bargain.
