300.04000 – Individual/Concerted/Activities/Self-Representation
Unlike other labor relations statutes, EERA specifically recognizes the right of employees to be represented by employee organizations of their own choice, not just in their employment relationships, but also in their professional relationships with public school employers; EERA also protects the right of certificated employees to be afforded a voice in the formulation of educational policy; accordingly, the filing of a curriculum complaint in response to concerns about the achievement gap amongst ninth grade students is protected activity.
