800.06000 – Other
Charge failed to establish that union’s refusal to allow employees to access employer’s mailboxes for purpose of communicating with members about contract ratification had a significant effect on their employment relationship so as to violate the duty of fair representation. The right of access to employer mailboxes under EERA attaches only to the employee organization, not individual employees. In addition, there is no evidence that charging parties were prevented from communicating to members via alternative communication channels, other than the District’s mailbox system.
