The Board granted with prejudice a charging party’s request to withdraw their exceptions to the ALJ’s proposed decision and that the proposed decision be made final and binding only to the parties in this dispute. MMBA section 3509, subd. (a), gives the Board broad discretion to grant or deny requests to withdraw exceptions and dismiss cases pending before the Board itself. Pursuant to the statutory purpose of promoting harmonious labor relations through the voluntary resolution of disputes, the Board will generally permit parties to withdraw exceptions pending before the Board pursuant to a voluntary settlement agreement resolving the issues in dispute.
