Perc Vol: 6

300.03000 – Activities for Nonexclusive Representative – Protected Right
Participation in a decertification election constitutes protected activity.
501.01000 – In General; Elements of Prima Facie Case
Employer's knowledge of protected activity is an essential element.
504.04000 – Timing of Action
Mere "coincidence in time" between protected activity and adverse action, without some proof of unlawful animus, does not support a finding of discrimination; pp. 13-14.
505.01000 – In General
Lack of "just cause" is not synonymous with anti-union animus; there are some improper or unlawful considerations of employer which bear no relation to matters contemplated under EERA; p. 15. Anti-union animus of a supervisor will not be attributed to employer unless supervisor contributed directly to decision to take adverse action.
