1000.02078 – Length of Instructional Day
* * * OVERRULED IN PART by Trustees of California State University (2012) PERB Decision No. 2287-H, where the Board held that a demand to bargain only needs to identify potential prospective effects, not actual effects. * * *
The District’s requirement to provide instruction during the enrichment period for the first time does not involve performance of new duties but rather an alleged increase in instructional time. Changes in the length of an instructional day are a management prerogative except when such changes impact the length of the employees’ workday or duty-free time. The burden is on the charging party to show such impact. The Federation did not state facts demonstrating an impact on the length of the employees’ workday or duty-free time.
