604.00000 – EMPLOYER REFUSAL TO BARGAIN IN GOOD FAITH; REFUSAL TO PROVIDE INFORMATION
604.01000 – In General

Union requested information relevant to its class action grievance asserting that the City violated the MOU’s antidiscrimination provision by disproportionately releasing from probation or extending the probation of African American bargaining unit members. In response, the City stated that it would provide the data only in aggregate form. When an employer unilaterally states such a position without offering to bargain in good faith over accommodating all relevant interests, the employer violates its duty to bargain in good faith and no further analysis is necessary to establish liability.
