602.00000 – EMPLOYER REFUSAL TO BARGAIN IN GOOD FAITH; UNILATERAL CHANGE (FOR NEGOT OF SPECIFIC SUBJECTS, SEE SEC 1000, SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION)
602.03000 – Contract Repudiation or Breach

Unilateral change of employees’ workweek, even though change lasted only two months, had a generalized effect or continuing impact on the bargaining unit, and thus was not a mere contract violation, because the employer claimed the parties’ collective bargaining agreement allowed it to unilaterally make the change and therefore the employer might make a similar change in the future.
