803.01000 – In General
The specific and unequivocal authority to negotiate a mandatory service fee found in EERA section 3546 controls and qualifies the general right (of employees) to refrain from participating in organizational activities expressed in section 3543. Therefore, "interference" with Cumero's right to refuse to participate in organizational activities resulting from his obligation to pay some service fee is justified by the California Legislature's assessment of the important contribution of organizational security arrangements to the system of employer-employee relations established under EERA; p. 10.
