1895E Newark Unified School District
1000.2059: SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION; Health Plans
The District violated EERA when it failed to meet and negotiate in good faith by refusing, during the 2003-2004 re-opener negotiations, to negotiate concerning the selection of a health insurance carrier. The fact that the health insurance carrier language was contained in the Compensation Article, required the District to negotiate the Association's proposal related to that article; the District did not act in good faith in advancing its positions related to the negotiability of the health care carrier and waiver language. Although the collective bargaining agreement language waives the right to negotiate the health carrier, with the parties agreeing instead to consult, the Compensation Article was subject to negotiation during the 2003-2004 school year negotiations as a re-opener. Since the health care carrier language in dispute is part of the Compensation Article, the District should have negotiated the Association's re-opener proposal related to health carriers, even though the proposal did not include an express repudiation of the contract’s waiver language. more or view all topics or full text.

1000.2059: SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION; Health Plans
County and union had full power through collective bargaining to establish the health and welfare program and to provide for the earnings deductions to pay for it. Group insurance benefits, as well as employee contribution toward the premiums for those benefits, are a mandatory subject of bargaining. Section 3505 requires county to meet and confer in good faith prior to making any unilateral change in the level of wages or benefits. County has a duty to maintain the status quo during negotiations respecting insurance benefits. more or view all topics or full text.
