603.04000 – Circumvention of Union; Direct Dealing With Employees
* * * OVERRULED ON OTHER GROUNDS by Sonoma County Superior Court (2015) PERB Decision No. 2409-C. * * *
Employer did not unlawfully bypass exclusive representative by allowing meeting between three teachers and their supervisor and refusing to allow presence of union representative, since direct meetings with employees to implement previously negotiated matters is not unlawful and no showing was made that subject within the scope of bargaining was discussed.
