Decision 2189E – Alvord Educator's Association (Bussman)

LA-CO-1378-E

Decision Date: June 29, 2011

Decision Type: PERB Decision

Description: The Board affirmed the dismissal of an unfair practice charge in which the charging party alleged the Association violated EERA when it failed to represent him, retaliated against him, and defamed him.

Disposition: The Board held the charge was not timely filed.  In addition, the Board held the duty of fair representation does not apply to extra-contractual forums.  Therefore, the Association did not breach its duty of fair representation by failing to respond to the charging party’s requests to represent him in litigation against the District over perceived violations of the California Education Code.
