Description: American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3299 (AFSCME) and University Professional & Technical Employees, Communication Workers of America, Local 9119 (UPTE) (collectively Unions) excepted to a proposed decision of an administrative law judge. The Unions alleged that the Regents of the University of California violated the Public Employee Communication Chapter (PECC) and the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA) by failing to provide them with required employee contact information and specific work location information for bargaining unit members, and unilaterally changing terms and conditions of employment without notice and an opportunity to meet and confer. The ALJ concluded that the University violated PECC section 3558 and HEERA section 3571, subdivision (a), by failing to provide AFSCME and UPTE with employee contact information as required by the PECC; violated section 3571, subdivisions (a) and (c) by unilaterally implementing a new policy regarding employees’ exercise of privacy rights as to personal contact information for members of UPTE’s bargaining units; and violated section 3571, subdivision (a) by interfering with the rights of employees in AFSCME’s bargaining units to have their personal contact information shared with the union. The ALJ dismissed all other allegations.
Disposition: The Board affirmed the proposed decision.
