SAN DIEGO -- The California Public Employee Relations Board ruled Monday that a pension reform initiative set for the June ballot in the city of San Diego amounts to an unfair labor practice.

The decision by the board will lead to a lawsuit to try to remove the measure from the ballot.

The initiative -- if passed -- would give most new employees 401(k) plans instead of enrolling them in the debt-ridden pension system. The measure would also figure only base compensation over the next five years into the eventual retirement pay of workers.

City unions contend that the initiative is sponsored by the city, since Mayor Jerry Sanders and Councilman Carl DeMaio are two of its leading advocates, requiring union bargaining.
