PERB’s jurisdiction arises under MMBA section 3509(b), which provides: A complaint alleging any violation of this chapter or of any rules and regulations adopted by a public agency pursuant to section 3507 or 3507.5, shall be processed as an unfair practice charge by the Board. In 1975, the Legislature enacted the Educational Employment Relations Act (EERA), thereby creating and vesting EERB (PERB’s precursor) with broad jurisdiction and remedial authority. EERA section 3541.3 provides, in pertinent part: The board shall have all of the following powers and duties: (i) To investigate unfair practice charges or alleged violations of this chapter, and take any action and make any determinations in respect of these charges or alleged violations as the board deems necessary to effectuate the policies of this chapter . . . (j) To bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction to enforce any of its orders, decisions, or rulings . . . (n) To take any other action as the board deems necessary to discharge its powers and duties and otherwise to effectuate the purposes of this chapter.
