Decision 2706M – City of Long Beach
LA-CE-1081-M & LA-CE-1107-M
Decision Date: April 15, 2020
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: PERB consolidated two cases for formal hearing and decision. The proposed decision dismissed Case No. LA-CE-1081-M, no party excepted to that dismissal, and accordingly, the ALJ’s findings and conclusions regarding that case did not come before the Board. In Case No. LA-CE-1107-M, a union representing several City bargaining units (and two individual bargaining unit members) alleged that the City violated the MMBA, PERB Regulations, and the City’s own local rules, in its handling of various representation petitions and the associated elections. The ALJ dismissed ten of 13 allegations in the complaint, but found that the City violated the MMBA, PERB’s regulations, and the City’s own local rules in three respects. Charging parties and the City filed cross-exceptions to the ALJ’s proposed decision.
Disposition: In a non-precedential decision, the Board affirmed the proposed decision and order, finding that the ALJ adequately considered and resolved any outcome-determinative issues raised in charging parties’ exceptions and the City’s cross-exceptions.
