On Monday, June 17 the Assembly Budget Committee will hear S-1191. Under this bill, school districts must notify employees whose jobs might be privatized at least 90 days in advance and sit down with the union to negotiate over the potential privatization.
S-1191 also includes language to allow counties the option to establish a countywide purchasing program. If a county opts to create such a program, then all school districts who currently subcontract their food or custodial services, would be required to contract with the county-selected vendor for those services.
