Although PERB precedent protects representational rights to a greater extent than corresponding precedent under federal law governing private sector labor relations, PERB considers relevant federal precedent for its persuasive value when it is consistent with California authority.

The Public Utilities Code’s transit district enabling acts generally grant SMCS jurisdiction to resolve questions concerning representation (QCR), including determinations of appropriate bargaining units. (p. 17.) Under PERB Regulation 93080, when deciding transit district representation cases, the Board shall apply relevant federal law and administrative practice developed under the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, as amended. (p. 17.) In doing so, the Board shall apply federal law under the LMRA unless (1) the question presented is governed by an explicit provision of the applicable transit district act, or (2) considerations unique to public sector labor relations require deviation from federal law.

The Legislature’s failure to address successorship in the MMBA does not mean it intended to prohibit application of the successorship doctrine to local public agencies. Legislative silence is not the equivalent of positive legislation. (p. 18.) Because the NLRA and MMBA similarly protect employees’ rights to bargain collectively through an employee representative of their own choosing and bar employers from refusing to negotiate with their employees’ chosen representative, there is no statutory reason to preclude application of the successorship doctrine in California’s public sector. (pp. 18-19.) However, differences between private and public sector employment require a more flexible accretion policy in the public sector to ensure that bargaining units are appropriately and rationally structured.

The federal presumption in favor of single facility bargaining units in the healthcare industry is incompatible with PERB’s preference for broad bargaining units in the public sector. (p. 27, fn. 24.) PERB seeks to avoid both unit fragmentation and proliferation to protect employee representation rights and to balance those rights with public employers’ interest in maintaining operational efficiency. (p. 27.) The final question in successorship analysis is therefore whether accreting the new employees to the successor’s existing units is appropriate. (Ibid.) more or view all topics or full text.

Though PERB may look to analogous federal precedent for guidance in construing California’s public sector labor relations statutes, it is not controlling authority. Thus, when federal law and the PERB-administered statutes serve dissimilar purposes, we are not constrained to follow federal precedent. (p. 28.) more or view all topics or full text.

101.3000: PERB: OPERATION, JURISDICTION, AUTHORITY; APPLICABILITY OF AND CONFLICTS WITH OTHER STATUTES; NLRA/LMRDA Precedent
In enacting the various Public Utilities Code transit district acts, the Legislature took three different approaches to how federal law would guide determinations of appropriate bargaining units and other representation matters. Some of these acts provide that SMCS “shall apply” relevant federal law, while others say SMCS “shall be guided by” relevant federal law. The third approach, covering four transit districts, omits any reference to federal law, and instead directs SMCS to establish appropriate bargaining unit “boundaries.” more or view all topics or full text.

PERB Regulation 93090 provides that in resolving questions of representation with regard to Public Utilities Code-established transit districts, “the Board shall apply the relevant federal law and administrative practice developed under the Labor Management Relations Act [LMRA], 1947, as amended.” In deciding whether federal law is “relevant” to the question presented in a particular case, PERB Regulation 93080 “does not demand slavish adherence to the LMRA.” (See Santa Clara Valley Transp. Auth. v. Rea (2006) 140 Cal.App.4th 1303, 1319 [interpreting language in PUC section 100301 identical to that in PERB Reg. 93080].) Under PERB Regulation 93080, federal law is relevant, and therefore must be applied, unless (1) the question presented is governed by an explicit provision of the applicable transit district statute or (2) considerations unique to public sector labor relations require a deviation from federal law. more or view all topics or full text.

The federal Weingarten doctrine and other non-California authorities must be harmonized with the language and purposes of the PERB administered statutes. Where California statutes provide for broader rights not found in the federal private sector law, the Board must follow the intent of the Legislature to effectuate the purposes of the statute. Where PERB chooses to follow federal authority on an issue, it is not automatically bound by subsequent developments in federal law on that point. The touchstone for whether private-sector decisional law or any other authority is applicable to the PERB-administered statutes is whether the underlying reasoning is consistent with the language and policies of the California statutes. It was not reversible error for the ALJ to rely on federal authority that is no longer controlling federal law because the underlying reasoning was consistent with the language and purposes of EERA and because the ALJ also relied on controlling PERB authority for the same point of law. Although California has generally imbibed the federal policy, as it applies to the scope of representation under the Weingarten decision, the representational rights of public-sector employees in California, and of employee organizations to represent them, have statutory bases and judicial approval which are independent from, and broader than, the "mutual aid or protection" language of section 7 of the NLRA on which Weingarten was decided. It was not reversible error for ALJ to rely on some federal authorities which have since been disavowed, because the underlying reasoning of those authorities was consistent with the language, policies and purposes of EERA and because the ALJ also relied on controlling PERB authority for the same point of law. more or view all topics or full text.

The ALJ relied properly on NLRB authority finding negotiable an employer’s use of surveillance cameras in the work place. (Colgate-Palmolive Co. (1997) 323 NLRB 515.) The District distinguishes this NLRB decision on the ground that the surveillance cameras in question were hidden and that the premises in question were private. Such distinctions (overt vs. covert cameras, and public vs. private premises) are of no moment when assessing whether workplace surveillance of employees presents issues appropriate for meeting and negotiating the effects of an employer’s decision to install security cameras. more or view all topics or full text.

It is well settled that although not bound, PERB will take cognizance of NLRB decisions where appropriate as an aid in interpreting identical or analogous provisions of the statutes. Additionally, NLRB’s experience with doctrines developed in a series of cases rather than codified in a federal statute or regulation can be considered where such doctrines are used as a prototype or model for California labor enactments. Legally, there is no basis to take cognizance of these cases given there are no parallel state and federal laws regarding the revocation of authorization signatures being interpreted. Similarly, these cases involve no case doctrine validating signature revocations which has been used as a prototype for PERB regulations. more or view all topics or full text.

Based on fundamental differences between the NLRA and EERA, the Board declines to apply NLRB unit clarification precedent, which would bar the granting of a unit modification without an election, to PERB unit modification proceedings. Under the NLRA, only an election determines the union’s majority status, it cannot be determined through the NLRB’s administratively required showing of interest whereas under the EERA, the statute itself calls for representation petitions to be supported by majority support and PERB regulations specifically contemplate the Board’s discretion to conduct an election or grant a petition without an election. more or view all topics or full text.
