1100.03000 – Standing
Charging Party (a unit member) lacks standing to file an EERA section 3543.6(c) allegation (failure to bargain in good faith) against her union where it is independent of a breach of a duty of fair representation claim. A charge of a refusal by the exclusive representative to bargain in good faith must be brought by the employer, and cannot be brought by an individual employee since the union's duty to bargain is owed to the employer, not to individual unit members.
