#17-232 Boling v. Public Employment Relations Bd., S242034. (D069626, D069630; 10 Cal.App.5th 853; San Diego County Superior Court; 2464-M, LA-CE-746-M, LACE-752-M, LA-CE-755-M, LA-CE-758-M.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal annulled a decision of the Public Employment Relations Board. This case includes the following issues: (1) When a final decision of the Public Employment Relations Board under the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act (Gov. Code, §§ 3500 et seq.) is challenged in the Court of Appeal, what standard of review applies to the Board’s interpretation of the applicable statutes and its findings of fact? (2) Is a public agency’s duty to “meet and confer” under the Act limited to situations in which the agency’s governing body proposes to take formal action affecting employee wages, hours, or other terms and conditions of employment?
