900.05000 – Post-Impasse
PERB has the authority under MMBA section 3505.4 to determine whether factfinding applies to the particular dispute in which the request for factfinding arises. In the course of responding to a factfinding request the Board has jurisdiction to decide all factual and legal issues pertinent to the request, even if those issues are also raised in an unfair practice case. In this case, it was unnecessary for the Board to resolve the overlapping legal and factual issues to determine that a request for factfinding was sufficient.
