804.02000 – Refusal to Bargain in Good Faith (See, also, Scope of Representation, Sec. 1000)
Union did not commit a ground rule violation when a Union bargaining team member made a verbal proposal, where the ground rules did not prevent verbal presentations of hypothetical proposals, and permitted either a spokesperson or his or her designee to speak for the bargaining team. Union was not required to reduce its verbal proposal to writing in the short interval between floating the proposal and reaching an overall tentative agreement later that day.
