606.05000 – Dilatory or Evasive Tactics
Allegation of repeated employer tardiness for bargaining and allegation of employer statements of disdain for factfinding are sufficient to justify issuance of complaint.
606.02000 – Inflexible Position
Employer's refusal to increase offer of 2 percent pay increase not evidence of bad faith. Employer has no obligation to increase offer to offset effect of delay in reaching agreement upon total value of offer over term. R.A. dismissal upheld.
300.04000 – Individual/Concerted/Activities/Self-Representation
Three employees who fail to sign employment contracts under guise of refusing to deal directly with employer did not engage in protected conduct. The employees did not follow union advice and failed to return to union written notices of intent to accept employment. Individual employee who refused to meet with school board to explain reasons for failing to sign and return employment contract acted individually and was unprotected. ALJ dismissal upheld.
