401.6000: EMPLOYER INTERFERENCE, RESTRAINT, COERCION, EMPLOYER CONDUCT AFFECTING ORGANIZING, UNION ACCESS; SOLICITATION, AND OTHER UNION RIGHTS; Bulletin Board Use; Posting of Union Notices
Employer unlawfully removed workload grievances posted by the union on its designated bulletin boards, claiming a legitimate business interest in removing derogatory materials from the bulletin boards. Under Rancho Santiago, communications about working conditions are permitted some leeway for intemperate language without losing statutory protection. Though the grievances were uncomplimentary of management, the rhetoric therein was typical of that used in labor disputes, and was thus protected speech.

Under Carlsbad USD (1979) PERB Decision No. 89, the removal of a flyer from the state owned building two weeks after it was posted, denied the employee organization an opportunity to maintain its communication with the unit members via the bulletin board, and therefore involves slight harm to the right of the employee organization; p. 20. more or view all topics or full text.
