410.01200 – Contextual Factors
The charter management organization sent e-mails to charter school employees between March 22 and May 1. The union filed representation petitions for three charter schools on May 2. The charter schools’ principals or assistant principals sent e-mails to charter school employees between April 27 and May 14. The e-mails thus were sent at a time when the union’s organizing efforts were beginning to produce results, at least at three charter schools. (pp. 66-67.) The Board found that the timing of the e-mails would tend to influence employee free choice about supporting the union.
