102.02000 – Concurrent or Conflicting Jurisdiction with Other Agencies or Courts; Interpretation or Enforcement of Other Statutes
MMBA Section 3509(a) grants PERB the authority to apply its powers and perform its duties described in Government Code Section 3541.3 to charges arising under the MMBA, while MMBA Section 3509(c) specifically grants PERB the authority to “enforce and apply rules adopted by a public agency concerning unit determinations, representation, recognition, and elections.” Thus, PERB has the statutory authority to determine if a public agency correctly applied local rules promulgated under the MMBA.
