Decision 2678M – County of Marin
Decision Date: October 25, 2019
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: Karen Kindig, an employee of Marin County, alleged that the County violated the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act. Kindig amended her charge six times, raising a number of different legal theories in the various iterations of her charge. PERB’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) dismissed the amended charge for failing to state a prima facie case and for being time-barred. Kindig timely appealed OGC’s dismissal of a single claim: that PERB should direct the County to inform unrepresented employees of their right to form a union.
Disposition: In a non-precedential decision issued pursuant to PERB Regulation 32320, subdivision (d), the Board affirmed the dismissal of the amended unfair practice charge. The Board expressed no opinion regarding the many issues the parties touched on in their filings with OGC but which Kindig did not raise on appeal.
