602.01000 – In General
To state a prima facie case of unlawful unilateral change, the Association must allege facts indicating that action was taken which changed the status quo regarding a matter within the scope of representation without giving the exclusive representative notice and opportunity to bargain; or, if negotiations have occurred, that the matter was not negotiated to agreement or through impasse prior to implementation of the change. Furthermore, to be unlawful, the change must amount to a change in policy having either a generalized effect or continuing impact on the matter within the scope of representation; pp. 8-9.
