407.04000 – Employer Favoritism/Absence of Strict Neutrality
Letter from the employer recognizing rival union as an "employee organization," per section 3513(a) is not unlawful support. Posting of letter by management listing names of rival union suggests management support for that union and is a violation of section 3519(d) breaching the requirement of strict neutrality; pp. 76-77, P.D. It is not favortism to rationally regulate use of meeting rooms. Reduction of recognized bargaining agent's bulletin board space does violate section 3519(a) and (b), but is not unlawful support for rival union; pp. 88, P.D. Statements by supervisors that the rival union should win the election or was much better than incumbent union constitute unlawful interference and support for rival; pp. 89-94, P.D.
