The charge alleged that violated Dills Act section 3519.5 where the charge involves conduct between an employee organization and a terminated employee which occurred subsequent to the termination of that individual from State employment, the former employee lacks standing to file an unfair practice charge against the employee organization based on that conduct. However, that holding does not alter the longstanding rule that terminated employees have the right under the Dills Act to challenge the termination itself as discriminatory, because such persons were State employees at the time of the allegedly unlawful conduct that formed the basis of the charge.
