604.01000 – In General
An employer’s duty of neutrality between internal union factions does not relieve it from continuing to deal in good faith with the bargaining unit’s chosen representatives during the pendency of the internal dispute, and in doing so the employer complies with its duty of neutrality. (City of Arcadia (2019) PERB Decision No. 2648-M, p. 26.) Similarly, a pending rescission petition did not provide a valid ground for the County to deny Union’s information request, as Union’s rights and duties with respect to representing employees continued unchanged during the pendency of a rescission petition.
