1972 – 50 years of service to the commercial industrial retail real estate industry – 2022.

A bill carried on behalf of SEIU by Assemblymember Jose Solario (D-Santa Ana) that forces employers to hire certain employees when the ownership or management of a building changes hands, will be heard in the Assembly Appropriations Committee on Wednesday, May 4.

The bill was previously approved by the Assembly Labor Committee on a party-line vote 5 to 1 vote (all Democrats in favor, one Republican in opposition).

AB 350 (Solorio) expands the “Displaced Janitor Opportunity Act” from the current 60 to 90 days, and expands the covered job types to security guards, landscapers, cafeteria workers, window washers, and other “building service employees.” The bill forces employers to hire certain individuals and purposefully seeks to undermine the at-will employment presumption in California to enable/ensure union representation, despite any change in employers.

This bill is a basic attack on your right to hire employees and contractors, and will add to the negative business climate in this state.
