1303.01000 – In General
Denying the employee the chance to vote in an agency fee election would violate the MOU and result in a violation of section 3515 by requiring the employees to participate in union activities, through use of the agency fee, in spite of the lack of authorization for such usage after July 1, 1986 (pursuant to the MOU provisions); p. 10. Through statutory interpretation, PERB is authorized to take the action necessary to implement the protections of section 3515 to hold the election as originally agreed to by the parties; pp. 10-11.
