Decision 2403E – Bellflower Unified School District
LA-CE-5707-E and LA-CO-1509-E
Decision Date: December 19, 2014
Decision Type: PERB Decision
Description: In cases cross filed by employer and employee organization and consolidated for hearing, the ALJ concluded that the employer violated EERA section 3543.5(a), (b) and (c) by unilaterally imposing furlough days on the classified employee bargaining unit and by discriminating against certain classified bargaining unit members because of the employee organization’s position in bargaining. The ALJ also concluded that the employer failed to establish that the employee organization had negotiated in bad faith.
Disposition: The employer filed exceptions after which the parties negotiated a resolution of their dispute and tendered jointly a request to dismiss with prejudice both pending cases. The Board deemed mutual withdrawal of the unfair practice charges and dismissal of PERB complaints to be consistent with the purposes of EERA and granted the parties’ request.
