800.04000 – Scope of Duty; Internal Union Affairs
Generally, PERB will not review matters concerning internal union affairs unless they have a substantial impact on the relationship of unit members to their employer so as to give rise to the duty of fair representation. To the extent alleged removal from union job steward position relates to internal union affairs, charge fails to demonstrate that harm or injury was caused to the employer-employee relationship, and fails to establish violation of the duty of fair representation. Allegations concerning failure to allow membership a platform to discuss contract ratification does not contain sufficient detail to demonstrate an unfair practice occurred.
