800.04000 – Scope of Duty; Internal Union Affairs
The exclusive representative has no duty of fair representation to provide assistance for an individually filed unfair practice charge with PERB since the EERA does not provide to employee organizations the exclusive right of filing charges. Exclusive representative has no duty under EERA to represent employees in cases (here, in charge filed by individual with PERB) involving extra-contractual remedies. Exclusive representative's duty of fair representation does not require representation to be "satisfactory."
