Decision 2792E – Glendale Unified School District
Decision Date: September 23, 2021
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: The Glendale Unified School District alleged that the Glendale Teachers Association violated its duty to bargain in good faith when one of its negotiators recorded a bargaining session even though the parties had agreed not to do so. An administrative law judge granted the Association’s prehearing motion to dismiss, and the District appealed. While the District’s appeal was pending before the Board, the parties informed the Board that they had settled their dispute and the District requested that it be permitted to withdraw the underlying unfair practice charge and appeal.
Disposition: The Board found the District’s withdrawal request to be consistent with EERA’s purpose of promoting harmonious labor relations. The Board therefore granted the District’s request.
