On appeal, the Court of Appeal of the State of California, 1st Appellate District, Div. 1 found that although section 3529 didn’t allow guards to attend such negotiations, the Department had waived its right to exclude them by agreeing to permit their attendance. The Department had also obligated itself to negotiate the guards’ grievances by an earlier agreement. The trial court was therefore reversed. See: CA Correctional Peace Officers Assoc. v. State of California, 142 Cal.App.4th 198, 47 Cal.Rptr.3d 717 (Cal.App. 1 Dist., 2006), review denied.
