102.01000 – In General/Exclusive Initial Jurisdiction-Deferral to Arbitration; Deference by Reviewing Courts
The Board adopts Litton Financial Printing Div. finds that arbitration clauses do not continue in effect after expiration of a collective bargaining agreement except for disputes that: (1) involve facts and occurrences that arose before expiration; (2) involve post-expiration conduct that infringes on rights accrued or vested under the agreement; or (3) under normal principles of contract interpretation, survive expiration of the agreement. The Board, therefore, overrules that portion of Anaheim City School District (1983) PERB Decision No. 364 which held that arbitration survives expiration of the agreement unless expressly or impliedly excluded; pp. 10-11.
