Employer coercively threatened employees with layoff in violation of MMBA section 3506 when, after employees filed unit modification petition, employer told employees that there would be layoffs if they went with the union. Employer told employees that, although they were free to join the union, problems with the union were creating legal expenses and the only budget item those expenses could come from was salaries and benefits, and that he was “disappointed” at the costs caused by the appearance of a union.
