Decision 2713E – Los Rios Community College District
Decision Date: May 12, 2020
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: A union alleged that a community college district refused to provide requested information and unilaterally changed a policy without providing notice and the opportunity to negotiate the decision and the effects thereof. After a formal hearing, an administrative law judge (ALJ) issued a proposed decision finding the employer unlawfully failed to provide necessary and relevant information. The ALJ dismissed all other allegations. Thereafter, the parties settled their dispute. Within the period in which the parties could timely file exceptions to the proposed decision, charging party requested to withdraw its charge and the parties jointly requested to vacate the ALJ’s proposed decision and to close the case.
Disposition: In this non-precedential decision, the Board exercised its discretion to grant charging party’s request to withdraw its charge and the parties’ joint request to vacate the proposed decision and to close the case. The Board’s determination was in accordance with its longstanding policy favoring voluntary settlement of disputes such as that achieved here.
