407.01000 – In General
City violated the MMBA by interfering with protected rights when it shared a competing union’s unredacted proof of support documents with incumbent union. Employees covered by the MMBA have comparable rights to those covered by EERA, which explicitly provides for proof of support confidentiality. There is no adequate basis for distinguishing the need for confidentiality under the two statutes, and disclosing proof of support documents has the same tendency to harm protected rights under the MMBA as it does under EERA and the other statutes PERB enforces.
