801.00000 – UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES;RESTRAINT, COERCION, INTERFERENCE OR DISCRIMINATION
801.01000 – In General

PERB will only intervene in the internal affairs of a union when the union’s conduct substantially impacts an employee’s relationship with his or her employer. Employee organization’s circulation to the entire bargaining unit of a letter from the employer canceling labor/management meetings because of conduct by an employee/union steward and employee organization’s decision that same employee would no longer represent it at labor/management meetings did not have a substantial impact on the employee’s relationship with the employer. Accordingly, the employee organization’s conduct was not subject to review by PERB.
