AB 5 has far reaching impacts for employers, but the Governor’s Signing Statement on AB 5 made it clear that the Governor sees AB 5 as an “important step” along the way—focused now on a future of “creating pathways for more workers to form a union…” The Statement, available here, also says that the Governor will convene leaders from the Legislature, the labor movement, and the business community to step “in where the federal government has fallen short and granting workers excluded from the National Labor Relations Act the right to organize and collectively bargain.” 

While there are no concrete steps laid out on how the Governor intends to reach this goal, it is clear that increased union activity is part of the plan.
