1404.01000 – In General
PERB has long held that a party is precluded from making unilateral changes in the status quo both during the term of a negotiated agreement and after that agreement expires, until such time as the parties negotiate a successor agreement or they negotiate through completion of the statutory impasse procedure. The PAR provision cannot be analogized to an arbitration clause. It continues in effect after expiration of the agreement because the parties agrees to condition the termination of the contract on discontinuation of state funding.
