1100.01000 – In General/Prima Facie Case
The Board has held that factual allegations offered by a charging party are to be considered true for purposes of determining whether there has been a prima facie showing of a violation, citing San Juan Unified School District (1977) EERB Decision No. 12; p. 5. The phrase "completion of negotiations" is ambiguous and thus the Board looks to other evidence to ascertain meaning. Charging party asserts that no ratification of the agreement was required before negotiations were complete, and thus a prima facie case had been established.
