University of California (UC) frequently outsources jobs from their unionized workforce and hires cheaper non-union contractors — undermining work quality and worker protections. To ensure a living wage and adequate worker protections, SB 574 would mandate that all UC contracted employees who work more than 10 days at the University be provided compensation and a benefits package equal to those provided to UC employees for the same work. (This bill was vetoed by Governor Brown.)
