The Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) is a quasi-judicial agency which oversees public sector collective bargaining in California. PERB administers seven collective bargaining statutes, ensures their consistent implementation and application, and adjudicates disputes between the parties subject to them. The statutes administered by PERB include the Educational Employment Relations Act (EERA) of 1976 establishing collective bargaining in California's public schools (K-12) and community colleges; the State Employer-Employee Relations Act of 1978, known as the Ralph C. Dills Act (Dills Act), establishing collective bargaining for state government employees; and the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA) of 1979 extending the same coverage to the California State University System, the University of California System and Hastings College of Law. The Meyers-Milias-Brown Act (MMBA) of 1968 establishing collective bargaining for California's municipal, county, and local special district employers and employees was brought under PERB's jurisdiction pursuant to Senate Bill 739 (Chapter 901, Statutes of 2000), effective July 1, 2001. PERB's jurisdiction over the MMBA excludes peace officers, management employees and the City and County of Los Angeles. In addition, PERB is responsible for the administration of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Transit Employer-Employee Relations Act (TEERA), covering supervisory employees of the transit agency. In addition, effective August 16, 2004, pursuant to Senate Bill 1102 (Chapter 227, Statutes of 2004), the Trial Court Employment Protection and Governance Act (Trial Court Act) and the Trial Court Interpreter Employment and Labor Relations Act (Court Interpreter Act) were brought under PERB's jurisdiction.
