1200.00000 – REMEDIES FOR UNFAIR PRACTICES; CEASE AND DESIST ORDERS
1200.01000 – In General

Our traditional remedy in a unilateral change case is a cease and desist order, coupled with affirmative relief consisting of an order to restore the prior status quo and an order to meet and confer upon request. The appropriate remedy for a violation of the duty to consult is akin to the remedy for a violation of the duty to meet and confer, viz., a cease and desist order, coupled with affirmative relief consisting of an order to restore the status quo and an order to consult in good faith upon request. Where a charter city without prior good faith consultation acts unilaterally to adopt or amend its rules and regulations for the administration of employer employee relations, whether the unilateral action is direct by adoption of an ordinance or indirect by referring a charter amendment for voter approval, the unilateral action violates MMBA section 3507 and gives rise under section 3509 to the Board’s authority as described in EERA section 3541.5, “to issue a decision and order directing an offending party to cease and desist from the unfair practice and to take such affirmative action, including but not limited to the reinstatement of employees with or without back pay, as will effectuate the policies of this chapter.”
