602.01000 – In General
Unilateral changes are considered “per se” violations if: (1) the employer implemented a change in policy concerning a matter within the scope of representation, and (2) the change was implemented before the employer notified the exclusive representative and gave it an opportunity to request negotiations. Thus, a charging party fails to establish a prima facie case for unilateral change when the proposed change was not implemented.
