1000.2117: SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION; Released Time
Released time is a negotiable matter. The Board’s holding in Willits Unified School District (1991) PERB Decision No. 912 (that the District violated EERA when it failed to grant paid released time to a union representative to attend a PERB settlement conference concerning an unfair practice charge) was not determinative here. In this case, the record does not indicate that the informal conference was an extension of the parties' negotiations, as was the case in Willits. more or view all topics or full text.

1030E San Mateo County Community College District
1000.2117: SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION; Released Time
The Board found that a negotiated provision on released time is not subject to a further level of review or scrutiny under EERA section 3543.1(c) when the unfair practice charge is filed after an agreement is in effect; pp. 16-17. The EERA provisions concerning released time are applicable at the onset of first time negotiations in order to ensure the ability to get to the negotiating table and in subsequent years when there are no controlling provisions of released time from prior agreements in operation; p. 17. Released time is a mandatory subject of bargaining and also a statutory right under EERA. Insistence upon negotiations on a mandatory subject of bargaining is not a per se violation of the duty to bargain under the theory of conditional bargaining; p. 18. Use of comparative data unnecessary as Board finds a per se violation to bargain under the theory of conditional bargaining; p. 18.

0177E Anaheim Union High School District
1000.2117: SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION; Released Time
Released time, though not specifically enumerated in the EERA, is related to hours and wages. Released time furthers the legislative goal that negotiations proceed expeditiously. The determination of the amount of released time is not a managerial prerogative. Good faith negotiations is the proper method of resolving conflict on this issue. In section 3543.1(c) the Legislature established a minimum released-time standard against which the parties good faith in negotiations on the subject could be measured. more or view all topics or full text.

0179E Sierra Joint Community College District
1000.2117: SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION; Released Time
Community college faculty proposal for a one-fifth reduction in the normal 15-hour teaching load for instructors on negotiating team is within scope as being related to hours. Restricting negotiating over released time to only those hours. ". . .when meeting and negotiating" at the table reads section 3543.1 too narrowly. Negotiations includes more than time spent actually at the negotiating table. Evidence of the amount of released time granted in neighboring school districts is relevant to show whether union proposal was "reasonable." more or view all topics or full text.
