101.02000 – Conflicts Between PERB-Administered Laws and Other California Statutes; Education Code/Supersession; MMBA Supersession
The home rule doctrine reserves to charter cities the right to adopt and enforce ordinances, provided the subject of the regulation is a municipal affair rather than a subject of statewide concern. The process of collective bargaining and the rights of employees and their organizations secured by the MMBA and the uniform application of that statute are matters of statewide concern. Thus, the home rule doctrine does not permit a charter city to enact or enforce a local ordinance that conflicts or is inconsistent with the intent or purpose of the MMBA.
