408.03000 – Investigatory Interviews
* * * OVERRULED by State of California (Department of Corrections) (1995) PERB Decision No. 1100-S, where the Board held that pre-arbitration deferral is based on the conduct underlying the unfair practice charge, not the particular code sections alleged to have been violated. * * *
Denial of "Weingarten rights" constitutes interference with protected rights and, therefore, violates 3519(a); since contract provision mirrors language of 3519(a), claim of denial of "Weingarten rights" deferred to arbitration, but concurrent claim of denial of employee organization rights not covered by contract is not deferred; pp. 4-6.
