Decision 0929S – State of California (Department of Personnel Administration) (Union of American Physicians and Dentists)
Decision Date: May 6, 1992
Decision Type: PERB Decision
Perc Vol: 16
Perc Index: 23067
1000.02012 – Budget Proposals
Board summarily affirms dismissal of charge that Governor violated 3516.5, and 3519(b) and (c) of Dills by failing to give unions notice and opportunity to bargain before proposing initiative which would allow him, in state of fiscal emergency, to furlough or reduce salaries of state employees, to the Attorney General or people of the state. Matters at issue found not to be within the scope of representation because: (1) the mediatory influence of collective bargaining is not suited to the resolution of this conflict; and (2) such obligation would unduly abridge employers' freedom to exercise managerial prerogative.
1107.15000 – Withdrawal of Appeal; Request that Decision be Vacated
As withdrawal is in the best interest of the parties and is consistent with the purposes of the Ralph C. Dills Act, the Board granted requests to withdraw exceptions and cross-exception to the proposed decision.
