604.01000 – In General
The District violated the MMBA by refusing to provide unit employees’ addresses and phone numbers. Local 517 is entitled to all information which is “necessary and relevant” to the discharge of its duty of fair representation. Failure to provide this information is a “per se” violation of the duty to bargain in good faith because it is “fundamental to the expanse of a union’s relationship with the employees.” The Board dismissed Local 517’s allegation that the District refused to provide information to Local 517 regarding pay rates since the District had actually provided this information.
