Decision 2727E – Service Employees International Union Local 99 (Thrash)
Decision Date: May 28, 2020
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: Charging Party Victor Thrash (Thrash) appealed the dismissal of his unfair practice charge alleging that his union, Service Employees International Union Local 99 (SEIU), violated EERA when it declined to pursue a grievance against his employer. Specifically, SEIU filed a related grievance on Thrash’s behalf, but declined to move the grievance to the next step of the process after learning that the employer requested additional documents from Thrash that he failed to provide. The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) dismissed the charge for failing to state a prima facie case.
Disposition: The Board affirmed OGC’s dismissal of the amended charge, agreeing that Thrash’s charge did not allege facts stating a prima facie case that SEIU violated EERA.
