Because EERA protects both the employees’ choice of a representative and their representative’s designation of its agents from employer interference, allegation that human resources official told employee that she, rather than employee, would choose employee’s union representative for him constituted prima facie case of interference with protected rights. Employer statements that assert a right to influence or direct employees’ choice of a representative interfere with protected rights, because they convey the impression that engaging in union or other concerted activity is futile. pp. 56-57.
