503.15000 – Other
* * * OVERRULED IN PART by California State Employees Association (Hard et al.) (1999) PERB Decision No. 1368-S, p. 28, where the Board held that the Service Employees International Union, Local 99 (Kimmett) (1979) PERB Decision No. 106 principle applies to claims that a union retaliated against or interfered with protected activity. In such claims, other than those challenging a union’s restriction on membership, a charging party employee must show the union’s conduct impacted the employee’s relationship with their employer. * * *
When a party shows a clear intent to take a disputed action against another, the harm occurs at that time and not when the wrongful act is completed; p. 8. The filing of written charges and a lawsuit against charging parties is cognizable harm. A person suspended from union membership cannot "participate" in the activities of the union and discriminatory interference with such participation constitutes harm; p. 8, p. 28, proposed dec.
