602.02000 – Prior Notice and Opportunity to Bargain
The Board concludes that the District did not provide prior notice to CSEA before the District conducted the election and announced its intent to implement the election results. This conclusion results from CSEA’s role in CBA ratification process as set forth in CSEA Policy 610 and Chapter 250’s constitution, known to both the District and Chapter 250, and the certification of the exclusive representative as CSEA and its Chapter 250, as listed in the CBA. CSEA immediately objected to the election and demanded the right to negotiate upon learning of its happening, contrary to the District’s assertions.
