California Government Code

Sec. § 110032

After the applicable mediation procedure has been exhausted, fact finding has been completed and made public, and no resolution has been reached by the parties, the Statewide Authority may declare an impasse and implement any or all of its last, best, and final offer. Any proposal in the Statewide Authority’s last, best, and final offer that, if implemented, would conflict with existing statutes or require the expenditure of funds shall be presented to the Legislature for approval. The unilateral implementation of the Statewide Authority’s last, best, and final offer shall not deprive a recognized employee organization of the right each year to meet and confer on matters within the scope of representation, whether or not those matters are included in the unilateral implementation, prior to the adoption of the annual budget or as otherwise required by law.
