ABC Defeated in San Diego, Again!
July 10, 2008 - A California Court of Appeal has denied a petition by supporters of an anti-union ballot measure in Chula Vista to place it on the November ballot. The denial means the measure WILL NOT appear on the ballot, barring some further action by the Supreme Court.
The measure was aimed at helping non-union contractors snatch contracts on publicly funded projects. The state Elections Code requires notice of a petition drive to be published in a local paper, and an affidavit of publication filed with elections officials within 10 days. The proponents of this measure filed their affidavit more than two months late, in violation of the law. The city clerk then properly rejected the petitions.
The State Building Trades Legal team is working with the San Diego Building Trades to kill this ballot initiative through all possible means.
We will continue to monitor developments in Chula Vista closely.Print this Page
