2475E United Teachers of Los Angeles (Raines, et al)
1402.4000: GENERAL LEGAL PRINCIPLES; WAIVER; By Acquiescence/Conduct
Because “waiver” generally denotes a voluntary relinquishment of a known right, there can be no waiver where there is no actual or constructive notice that a right is being relinquished. Employees cannot have acquiesced or waived their right to give input on a change in their collectively-bargained seniority rights or priority order when they neither knew nor reasonably should have known that the representative was considering modifying seniority or priority rights. more or view all topics or full text.

1402.4000: GENERAL LEGAL PRINCIPLES; WAIVER; By Acquiescence/Conduct
The union president made a bargaining demand in his March 5, 2012, e-mail to the City Manager. Any waiver of a right to bargain over a negotiable contracting out decision must be clear and unmistakable. Therefore, the union’s March 5, 2012, bargaining demand obviates a determination that the union waived its right to bargain by inaction. more or view all topics or full text.

1822E Santee Elementary School District
1402.4000: GENERAL LEGAL PRINCIPLES; WAIVER; By Acquiescence/Conduct
A valid request to negotiate will be found if it adequately indicates a desire to negotiate on a subject within scope. (Newman-Crows Landing Unified School District (1982) PERB Decision No. 223.) In this case, STA made a reasoned decision not to demand to barain the adoption of the Board Policy after being given 2 weeks notice of the Board’s intent. Protests over District’s contemplated change is not a demand to bargain. An employer is obligated to provide the exclusive representative with notice and an opportunity to negotiate over the effects of its decisions that have an impact upon matters within scope. (Oakland Unified School District (1985) PERB Decision No. 540.) Union did not waive its right to negotiate the impacts of the Board Policy because it had waived its right to negotiate over the decision to adopt the BP. more or view all topics or full text.

1402.4000: GENERAL LEGAL PRINCIPLES; WAIVER; By Acquiescence/Conduct
Contract language that the District has the right to "maintain the efficiency of District operations" is generally-worded management rights clause, and thus will not be construed as a waiver; p. 57, proposed dec. Employer's failure to require sick leave verification consistently in the past does not preclude it from doing so in the future; p. 54, proposed dec. Union does not waive its right to negotiate by failing to request negotiations after the employer's firm decision.
