504.04000 – Timing of Action
Employer’s solicitation of union president’s resignation in lieu of termination just as negotiations for new collective bargaining agreement were beginning supported an inference of unlawful motive. Timing of employer’s decision to nonrenew teacher who had served on union’s bargaining team and as its grievance chair supported an inference of unlawful motive. Decision to nonrenew was made just weeks after PERB certified impasse between union and employer and two months after teacher filed union’s first grievances during current superintendent’s tenure.
