1205.3000: REMEDIES FOR UNFAIR PRACTICES; MISCELLANEOUS REMEDIAL PROVISIONS; Notices; Posting, Reading, and Mailing
Unless the Board limits the posting requirement, PERB’s traditional remedy for an employer’s unfair practice includes a notice posting requirement on a unit-wide basis. “The purpose of posting a notice incorporating the terms of the order is educational for the represented employees. It is to notify employees of the conduct that was found to be unlawful, assure all employees affected by the decision of their rights and PERB’s conclusions, and inform employees that the controversy is now resolved and the employer is ready to comply with the remedy ordered.” [Citation.] The posting requirement also serves the purpose of “prevent[ing] the recurrence of the prohibited conduct on a unit-wide basis.” [Citation.] (pp. 12-13.) more or view all topics or full text.

1205.3000: REMEDIES FOR UNFAIR PRACTICES; MISCELLANEOUS REMEDIAL PROVISIONS; Notices; Posting, Reading, and Mailing
Posting copies of the remedial order in unfair practice cases effectuates the policies and purposes of California’s labor relations statutes; where the violation to be remedied does not involve contract language applicable to the entire bargaining unit, and the only employees affected by the Board’s decision are those located at a specific site where the violation occurred, it is appropriate to order respondent to post notice at locations where notices to those employees are customarily posted; a broader system-wide or unit-wide notice may be warranted where the violation to be remedied concerns contract language applicable to the entire bargaining unit whose members are employed on a system-wide basis; the scope of notice is to be determined based on the facts of the case on a case-by-case basis. more or view all topics or full text.

1205.3000: REMEDIES FOR UNFAIR PRACTICES; MISCELLANEOUS REMEDIAL PROVISIONS; Notices; Posting, Reading, and Mailing
The purpose of posting a notice incorporating the terms of PERB’s order is educational for the represented employees. It is to notify employees of the conduct that was found to be unlawful, assure all employees affected by the decision of their rights and PERB’s conclusions, and inform employees that the controversy is now resolved and the employer is ready to comply with the remedy ordered. Charging party’s request that the posting be placed on the CSU system wide website or the CSUEB campus website therefore is overbroad for the purposes of fulfilling the notification requirement to represented employees, because the visitors to the system wide and campus websites are not only faculty or employees, but students, parents, and members of the public more or view all topics or full text.

Because the unfair practice committed in this case involved the employer’s direct communications via mass email to bargaining unit employees, the Board reviewed and updated PERB’s traditional posting requirement to conform to the realities of the 21st-century workplace. Where the offending party in unfair practice proceedings regularly communicates with employees by email, intranet, websites, or other electronic means, it shall be required to use those same media to post notice of the Board’s decision and remedial order in addition to PERB’s traditional physical posting requirement. Pursuant to its authority to inform employees of their rights and its discretion to determine the circumstances and methods best suited for accomplishing this task, the Board may expand the usual requirement that a respondent post notice of its unfair practices beyond the immediately affected employees to reach employees in other bargaining units whose rights were affected by the same unlawful conduct. Because the City’s unlawful transfer of bargaining unit work caused employees to “bump” into lower classifications in other bargaining units, the City was required to post notice designed to reach employees in all affected bargaining units. more or view all topics or full text.

The appropriate remedy for an employer bypass violation related to statements posted on the employer website, was a notation to the posting indicating that it did not apply to employees represented by the charging party. An ALJ’s order removing the posted statements from the website is overbroad. more or view all topics or full text.

A300S State of California (Departments of Personnel Administration, Banking, et al.)
1205.3000: REMEDIES FOR UNFAIR PRACTICES; MISCELLANEOUS REMEDIAL PROVISIONS; Notices; Posting, Reading, and Mailing
The purpose of posting is to ensure that all employees affected by a decision are notified of their rights under the statute and of PERB's findings regarding violations of those rights. Posting also serves to notify the affected employees that the controversy has been resolved and announces the employer's readiness to comply with the ordered remedy. No statewide posting here because the case involved the legality of three particular agencies' policies and/or the application of those policies to employees of those agencies. The charge does not identify or challenge a statewide policy. It does not claim that the agencies' policies had a unit-wide effect. It does not claim that any other agency's policy violated the Dills Act, beyond the named agencies. Accordingly, the remedy applies only to the three agencies whose policies and application of those policies were at issue in the case and were found to be unlawful. more or view all topics or full text.

Nowhere in PERB regulations or in EERA is there a prohibition against school district employees as opposed to non-district personnel posting a notice pursuant to a PERB order; nor is there a requirement that specific individuals post such notices; EERA provides no authority for PERB to require non-district employees to perform such a function; p. 3, dismissal letter. more or view all topics or full text.
