Customer Question

we are in contract negotiations with our employer. We are arguing the Ed. Code 3547 that to us states any article that is being proposed must be sunshined with specific details as to which parts of the article is up for discussion. Our employer decided to open 2 articles and we opened two articles. When our employer provided us with a counter proposal, they did not address our initial proposal but instead decided to address other parts of the article that were not up for discussion. They claim that when an article is opened by either party, then they can address it even if we did not include it in our initial proposal. I find this hard to believe because in order to inform our members of what we will be discussing, we have to be specific such as we are opening an article about leave time, specifically regarding adding an additional holiday day.
