300.13000 – Holding Union Office
Union president’s active role in union’s election campaign against successful mayoral candidate, including questions asked at city council meeting pursuant to a vote of the union’s membership and governing board, and writing a letter to the editor in the local newspaper that identified her as the union president, constituted protected activity because the union’s election campaign was a matter of employer-employee relations. A letter to the editor and recorded phone call critical of the successful mayoral candidate that identified the president only as a city employee were not protected activity because they were not part of the union’s election campaign and did not concern matters of employer-employee relations.
