602.01000 – In General
Charging party’s claims that employer created a point system for absences, late calls or tardiness, reduced the level of benefits that employees would receive, and made changes to the merit pay policy were insufficient to establish a prima facie case for illegal unilateral change. Charge failed to include facts setting forth the original policies or procedures and/or how the new procedures were different from the originals. This information is essential to charging party’s claim. It is a charging party’s responsibility to allege a “clear and concise statement of the facts and conduct alleged to constitute an unfair practice charge.” Mere legal conclusions are not sufficient to state a prima facie case.
