1402.02000 – Union’s Waiver of Employee or Organizational Rights
Actions of two school board members who wrote letters of commendation to non-strikers are acts of the employer. Letters were written on official school district stationary, board members signed letters with their official board titles, other three members of the school board effectively ratified the action by failing to act when given notice of the letters, and District management authorized placement of the letters in employee personnel files. Education Code sections defining what constitutes an official act of a school board are irrelevant.
