602.02000 – Prior Notice and Opportunity to Bargain
* * * OVERRULED IN PART ON OTHER GROUNDS by County of Sacramento (2013) PERB Decision No. 2315-M. * * *
Layoff notices sent to bargaining unit members did not constitute sufficient notice to the union of the employer’s decision to layoff employees. Request to bargain over layoff decision would have been futile because layoff notices indicated the employer had already made a firm decision.
