1402.01000 – In General
Union waived its right to pursue future claims against the State employer for State’s failure to implement union leave provisions of its last, best, and final offer. Union entered into a written union leave agreement that contained a clause which explicitly waived the union’s right to pursue future claims on the subject. Because the plain language of the agreement constituted a clear and unmistakable waiver of all future claims, the Board did not consider the bargaining history of the agreement presented by the union.
