804.02000 – Refusal to Bargain in Good Faith (See, also, Scope of Representation, Sec. 1000)
Allegations of delay (refusal to schedule bargaining during finals week or winter break) do not rise to level of per se violation of the duty to bargain in good faith and are analyzed under the "totality of the circumstances" test; p. 1 and 2, dismissal letter. Ground rules for negotiation, including the time and place of negotiations, are within the scope of bargaining; p. 3, warning letter. Allegations that parties exchanged numerous proposals regarding the time and place of bargaining and that union precipitously cancelled one bargaining session are insufficient to demonstrate violation of the duty to bargain in good faith; p. 3, warning letter.
