300.04000 – Individual/Concerted/Activities/Self-Representation
The right to represent oneself contained in section 3543 does not include the right to do so in an arbitration case (p. 8); for the same reason, in arbitration there is no right to have own attorney rather than exclusive representative; p. 10.

Charging party fails to show alleged breach of contract also constitutes unfair practice; p. 11.
