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

The labor relations statutes PERB administers confer upon an exclusive representative, as part of its representational rights and duties, separate informational rights that are broader than those that the public holds, and which include access to sensitive and confidential employee information. (Sacramento City Unified School District (2018) PERB Decision No. 2597, pp. 10-12.) California Public Records Act defenses accordingly do not apply to RFIs arising under a labor relations statute. (Id. at p. 10; accord Butte-Glenn Community College District (2022) PERB Decision No. 2834, p. 15, fn. 9; County of Tulare (2020) PERB Decision No. 2697-M, pp. 14-15, fn. 9.)
