Update blawg info

I've decided that this new template looks tons better. It seemed like the logical time to do this, since a rebuild was in order.

My name is Jon Storm. I practice labor and employment law in San Luis Obispo, California.

Coke Strike

The San Diego Union-Tribune has this report:

About 500 Teamsters yesterday struck the Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of San Diego after four months of negotiations failed to achieve a new union contract. The key issue in the dispute is health care costs for workers, the union said.>

Yet another strike over health care costs.

Coming soon: legislative roundup

I had intended to begin doing a "legislative roundup" every few days this week, but the leginfo.ca.gov site is refusing to cooperate with my plans.

Perhaps worth noting is that State Senator Martha Escutia (D-Whittier) is leading in the race to be the next President Pro-Tem. Sen. Escutia held the failed compromise talks over UCL reform.

Time has not yet permitted me to get on top of all of the bills currently before the legislature that might impact the Labor Code.
