Decision 2824I – Region 3 Court Interpreter Employment Relations Committee
Decision Date: July 5, 2022
Decision Type: PERB Decision (Non-Precedential)
Description: California Federation of Interpreters, Local 39000, the Newspaper Guild-Communication Workers of America (CFI) alleges that the Region 3 Court Interpreter Employment Relations Committee (Committee) violated the Trial Court Interpreter Employment and Labor Relations Act (Court Interpreter Act) by failing to respond to CFI’s requests to bargain. The proposed decision found that the Committee, which eventually commenced negotiations with CFI, did not violate its duty to meet and confer in good faith, because its conduct did not amount to either a per se violation or a violation based on the totality of the circumstances, and did not interfere with any protected rights. CFI filed exceptions to the proposed decision.
Disposition: In a non-precedential decision the Board affirmed the proposed decision, finding that CFI failed to demonstrate that the Committee violated the duty to meet and confer in good faith or interfered with any rights protected by the Court Interpreter Act. The Board therefore dismissed the complaint and underlying unfair practice charge.
