801.1000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION; In General
To state a prima facie case of interference, a charging party must establish that the respondent’s conduct tends to or does result in some harm to employee rights granted under the Dills Act. The test for whether a respondent has interfered with the protected rights of employees under the Dills Act does not require that unlawful motive or intent be established, but only that at least slight harm to employee rights results from the conduct. more or view all topics or full text.

Alleged campaign misrepresentations which would reasonably tend to interfere with or restrain voters and do not merely involve representations which voters would assess reasonably as mere electioneering puffery are to be assessed under a totality of the circumstances test to determine if the alleged conduct tends to, or does, interfere with employees’ right freely to choose a representative. more or view all topics or full text.

801.1000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION; In General
Charge failed to establish prima facie case of discrimination/retaliation. Board will not intervene in disputes that involve only the internal union activities of an employee organization unless those activities substantially impact employer-employee relations. Under a retaliation analysis, charge adequately alleged the first two elements that charging party participated in protected activities of filing PERB charges and assisting in prosecution of a co-worker’s PERB charge and that the employee organization had knowledge of those activities. Charge failed to allege facts to establish that either the employee organization’s decision not to pursue charging party’s grievance or its issuance of a letter of reprimand to charging party had an adverse impact on employment for purposes of establishing the adverse action element of a retaliation case. Charge also failed to set forth any facts establishing unlawful motive or nexus. more or view all topics or full text.

801.1000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION; In General
PERB does not have jurisdiction over allegation that union allowed members at one site, but not charging party’s site, to vote in contract ratification election on specified date, absent a showing that this conduct had a substantial impact on charging party’s relationship to his employer. Allegation that, as a result of this vote and subsequent contract, charging party was given two classes he had not previously taught, was not afforded a request for transfer, and that the ratified contract resulted in the employer being able to save itself money does not establish the required impact, because the dispute concerns internal union operations and communications with union members, not the ultimate outcome of negotiations between the union and the employer. Right provided by the employee organization itself, for example, the right to vote on contract ratification, is not provided by EERA. more or view all topics or full text.

In analyzing allegations of discrimination that also violate the duty of fair representation, the Board follows the principles applicable for violations of parallel provisions prohibiting employer interference and reprisals. In order to prevail on a discrimination theory, the charging party must establish: (1) the employee exercised rights guaranteed by EERA; (2) the employee organization had knowledge of the employee’s exercise of those rights; (3) the employee organization took adverse action against the employee; and (4) the employee organization took the action because of the exercise of those rights. more or view all topics or full text.

To be timely, a charge alleging a violation of section 3546.5 must be filed within six months of when the charging party knew or should have known that the employee organization failed or refused to provide the requested financial report for the immediately preceding fiscal year. more or view all topics or full text.

In ascertaining whether a misrepresentation by a party during an election campaign interferes with employee rights, PERB looks to whether the statement was made in a fraudulent manner that would prevent an employee from evaluating the truth of the statement. Union flyer instructing employees to give their mail ballots to a “trusted shop steward” did not interfere with employee rights because employees had ample means to learn the proper method for returning the ballot well before the ballot return date: the union immediately issued a corrected flyer, mailed a newsletter containing a correction to each bargaining unit member’s home, and ballot instructions were posted at the employer’s premises and included by PERB with the ballot itself. more or view all topics or full text.

Unfair practice charge against union for failure to allow non-members to cast a vote to determine support for a proposed two-day-a-month furlough program was dismissed. A union may exclude non-members from voting as long as the union provides the employees some opportunity to communicate their views.

Charging parties failed to establish that union was aware of their decision not to comply with union’s request that they participate in a demonstration in support of another union. To prove the knowledge element of the prima facie retaliation case, charging parties must establish "actual knowledge," meaning that the relevant individual or entity actually knew of the fact in question or was otherwise "clearly informed" of that fact. more or view all topics or full text.

801.1000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION; In General
Actions of the president of employee group in maintaining a website critical of incumbent union and collecting signatures on decertification petition that was not filed with PERB did not unlawfully interfere with charging party’s ability to pursue his own decertification petition or to create a new employee organization to represent the bargaining unit. Charging party failed to demonstrate how president’s actions resulted in “some harm” to charging party’s decertification efforts, where charging party failed to establish that he was unable to obtain the necessary signatures to file his decertification petition, or that any bargaining unit member forewent signing charging party’s petition because of the president’s actions. Even if the president’s activities interfered with charging party’s activities, the charging party failed to establish that this activity was not itself protected activity. A respondent’s speech causes no cognizable harm to employee rights unless it contains a “threat of reprisal or promise of benefit.” Under this standard, even if actions of the president of employee group in maintaining a website critical of incumbent union affected charging party’s ability to pursue his own decertification efforts, charging party has not demonstrated that maintenance of website constitutes a “threat or reprisal or promise benefit.” more or view all topics or full text.

PERB will only intervene in the internal affairs of a union when the union’s conduct substantially impacts an employee’s relationship with his or her employer. Employee organization’s circulation to the entire bargaining unit of a letter from the employer canceling labor/management meetings because of conduct by an employee/union steward and employee organization’s decision that same employee would no longer represent it at labor/management meetings did not have a substantial impact on the employee’s relationship with the employer. Accordingly, the employee organization’s conduct was not subject to review by PERB. more or view all topics or full text.

801.1000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION; In General
To state a prima facie case of interference under HEERA, a charging party must establish that the respondent's conduct tends to or does result in some harm to employee rights granted under HEERA. A violation may only be found if HEERA provides the claimed rights. HEERA section 3565 grants employees the right to participate in the activities of their employee organization or to refuse to join the employee organization or participate in its activities. HEERA section 3562(f)(2) expressly excludes the Academic Senate from the definition of employee organization. Thus, rights involving faculty participation in the Academic Senate are not covered by HEERA. Charging Parties have not demonstrated that the Association interfered with their protected rights under HEERA when the Association informed the Academic Senate that it continued to negotiate with the University over implementation of SB 1212. more or view all topics or full text.

As such, the charge does not demonstrate that the Union's inaction can be considered an adverse action, nor does the charge provide facts indicating that its failure to respond to the Department's decision to not reinstate him was retaliatory in nature. more or view all topics or full text.

801.1000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION; In General
A charging party must specifically describe why an internal union procedure or its application is unreasonable. In this case, the charging party failed to do so. In discrimination charges filed against employee organizations based on internal union activity, the charge must demonstrate that the internal union conduct had an impact on employer-employee relations. In addition, the adverse action taken by the employee organization must have some impact on employer-employee relations. In this case, there was no impact on the employer-employee relations. The test under Dills Act section 3515.5 only applies to an employee who has been suspended or expelled from union membership. more or view all topics or full text.

Similar to the situation in California State Employees Association (Barker & Osuna) (2003) PERB Decision No. 1551-S, the Federation’s removal of Stryker from the negotiating team differs from suspension or dismissal from membership governed by EERA section 3543.1(a). Therefore, the Federation did not interfere with protected rights under EERA. The Federation did not discriminate against Stryker under EERA since removal from the negotiating team is an internal union matter and Stryker provided no facts showing a substantial impact on the employer-employee relationship. more or view all topics or full text.

801.1000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION; In General
PERB has long held that the standard applied in cases involving employer discrimination is appropriate in cases alleging discrimination by an employee organization. Charging party alleged that union removed him from union position because he also held an office in the Classified Senate. Board found that since Classified Senate is not an “employee organization” under EERA, holding office in such an organization is not protected activity. PERB has been reluctant to interfere in the internal affairs of an employee organization unless those affairs impact the member’s relationship with his employer. Charging party’s allegation that he was removed from union office fails to establish unlawful interference since his relationship with his employer was not impacted. Union’s refusal to allow employee to run for the negotiating committee was not adverse act because it didn’t impact his relationship with employer. more or view all topics or full text.

In order to establish a prima facie case of unlawful interference, the charging party must establish that the respondent's conduct tends to or does result in some harm to employee rights granted under EERA. On its face, the statutory right of self-representation falls short of the right to resort to the arbitation process. Under the statute and Board precedent, this contractual limitation does not violate charging party's section 3543 rights, and this allegation must be dismissed. Federation's agreement to contract language which denies employees the right to have a representative of the employee's choice in grievance meetings fails to state a prima facie violation. more or view all topics or full text.
