1310.06000 – Unfair Practice and Unit Modification

As a result of applying its unilaterally-adopted concurrent appointment policy, UC Santa Cruz eliminated a Non-Senate Faculty (NSF) Unit Member’s appointment as a 15 percent full-time equivalent lecturer and modified his non-exempt appointment to include the NSF Unit work. Because this conduct unilaterally modified the NSF Unit without UC-AFT’s agreement or utilization of PERB’s unit modification procedures, and also unilaterally modified Article 1 of the parties’ Agreement without providing UC-AFT notice and an opportunity to bargain, the Board concluded that the University violated HEERA section 3571, subdivisions (a) and (c). (pp. 20-21.)
