800.04000 – Scope of Duty; Internal Union Affairs
Matters concerning internal union affairs are immune from PERB review, unless they have a substantial impact on the relationships of unit members to their employers so as to give rise to a duty of fair representation violation, or involve retaliation for protected activity; p. 2, warning letter. In CSEA (Parisot) (1983) PERB Decision No. 280, the Board adopted the retaliation exception to the general rule that the Board will not inquire into the internal affairs of an employee organization; p. 3.
