408.01000 – In General
The City unlawfully designated the union’s attorney as Trujillo’s representative. It is well-established that an employee organization has the right to designate its own representatives in dealing with the employer. The MMBA precludes the Brown Act restriction of employee organization representatives imposed by the City Council. Even under a reasonableness standard, excluding McCormick while permitting the City’s representative and chief witness to remain in the hearing was unreasonable.
